It is mandatory for, a student to attend all the classes, tutorials, laboratories and other evaluation components conducted by the University. A student may be detained from appearing for an examination on grounds of shortage of attendance.

Marks awarded (%)
≥ 90 and < 95
≥ 85 and < 90
≥ 80 and < 85
≥ 75 and < 80
75% attendance in each course is mandatory to attain eligibility to appear for the comprehensive examinations without getting detained in any course. However, some relaxation to this rule of 75% minimum attendance is possible in the case of students participating in extra curricular activities as identified below:
One week for state level competitions.
Two weeks for National level competitions and
Three weeks for International events irrespective of the number of events and/the number of participations in a semester.
If the period of absence in a semester is for a short duration (of not more than one week) prior application for leave should be submitted to the Head of the Department clearly stating the reasons for absence along with supporting documents. The Head of the Department will grant such leave at his discretion. He/ She may be allowed for makeup of Laboratory/workshop classes conducted during the period of absence.
Absence for a period not exceeding one week in a semester due to sickness or any other unavoidable reason for which prior application could not be made may be condoned by the Dean Academics, provided he is satisfied with the explanation.
If the period of absence is likely to exceed one week, a prior application for grant of leave should be submitted to the Head of the Department.
In special cases and for sufficient cause shown, the Dean Academics on the recommendation of the Head of the Department may condone the deficiency not exceeding 10% in attendance due to ill-health, when the application submitted at the time of the actual illness is supported by a certificate from an authorized medical officer.
A student must intimate his/her absence to the Superintendent/Warden of the Hostel in which he/she is residing, before availing of any leave. Failing to do so will be construed as breach of discipline.
