Leave of Absence (LOA)
All scheduled classes are compulsory. For students who are unable to attend classes or Summative Assessments because of illness covered by a Medical Certificate (MC) or other reasons as acceptable by RP, they may apply for a Leave of Absence (LOA).
Students must submit an application for LOA within 3 working days from the last day of the absence. Late submission will NOT be accepted.
The 3 working days would include the Study Break prior to Mid-Semester Assessment (MSA) and End-Semester Examination (ESE).
The 3 working days exclude vacation periods as specified in the RP Academic Calendar.
How to apply:
For absences covered by a Medical Certificate (MC), please submit the original MC to the One-Stop Centre (OSC).
For absences not covered by a MC, please submit a LOA application online via OASIS.
For more information regarding application of LOA, please refer to the Student Handbook.
