1. Leave
Leave of absence is granted only to students who wish to temporarily interrupt their training for personal reasons. A request for leave must be made in advance in writing, or time away from school will be considered an unexcused absence. The Veterans Administration will be notified immediately when a veteran student is granted a leave of absence.

2. Absence
An excused absence is one that is due to illness, death in the immediate family or any other unavoidable circumstances; however, the school must be apprised of the reason for such absences within 24 hours and the reason must be supported by documentary evidence, or the absence will be recorded as unexcused; three unexcused absences in any one month will result in immediate dismissal. All students must attend 85 percent of the duration of the courses in order to attain satisfactory attendance. When a student has missed over 15 percent of the duration of the course by excused and/or unexcused absences, his or her training will be interrupted immediately.

3. Class-Cuts
Class-cuts are not permitted and will be recorded as unexcused absences.

4. Make-Up Work
Make-up work is not permitted for the purposes of receiving Veterans Administration training allowances.

5. Tardiness
Any student not physically present at the start of a scheduled class period will be considered tardy, and the exact number of minutes will be recorded as per Form DPI 358-4. Excessive tardiness, such as three times unexcused in any five-day period, shall be cause for discontinuance of training.

6. Unsatisfactory Progress
Students receiving failing grades are placed on probation for 60 days. If unsatisfactory progress continues beyond the probationary period, the student’s training will be interrupted immediately and all concerned will be notified accordingly. Students dismissed because of unsatisfactory progress may apply for re-entrance; however, each case will be considered on the basis of the facts involved.

7. Refund Policy
If a war orphan or eligible person fails to enter the course, or withdraws or is discontinued there from at any time before completion, the amount charged to the veterans for tuition, fees and other charges for a portion of the course shall not exceed the approximate pro rata portion of the total charges for tuition, fees and other charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to its total length.

8. Credit for Previous Education and Training
Appropriate credit is given for comparable previous education and training, and the training period will be shortened accordingly.
