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.

Please note:

  • 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.
