Deprivation and its Elevation

- 2016/06/14


Students are deprived of continuing to study their courses and sitting for their final exams (and the second semester in full year systems) if their absence rate (whether justified or not) exceeds 25% of the total lectures, scientific, field and clinical classes – according to the following schedule. Being deprived of completing a study course is equivalent to not passing it and students get grade F in their final result certificates.

Elevation of Deprivation

The concerned Faculty council, or those whom they delegate according to a report submitted by the head of the department giving the course (or the academic office in case of full year system) may elevate the deprivation of a student if they submit to the head of department an excuse that the faculty council deems acceptable; however, absence rate is not to exceed 50% of lectures, practical classes, field and clinical classes designated for the course
