Absence with leave is a system established for students who have to miss class due to unavoidable reasons.
Approval of Absence with Leave  
In order to get approval for an absence with leave, you have to submit a written document outlining the cause of absence (refer to table #1) within seven days of the occurrence of the cause. The request will be approved after it is sent to the adviser and the department head and confirmed by the Dean of Academic Affairs.
If you are unable to take either the midterm or final exam due to absence with leave, you may submit a grade recognition application and get graded based only on the exam you have taken. If you were unable to take both the midterm and final exam, or failed to take the only exam that took place for the respective semester, you will be graded only if you take a makeup exam.
