Absences Due to Official Business

Absences due to official business are absences incurred because of one‘s participation in UA&P institutional events and activities that normally appear in the official calendar of activities.
Absences due to sickness and official business shall be deducted from your balance of allowable absences, but entitle you to make up for work missed on the day(s) of absence (this includes papers, quizzes, and exams). However, you must not expect these types of absences to increase the total number of allowable absences: the percentage of allowable absences will remain constant.
Absences will be more stringently assessed when these occur during preliminary and final examinations.
Policies regarding late submission of requirements due to either of these two types of absences are left to the discretion of the teacher.
