Academic Policies

Attendance
Each student is expected to attend all of his/her classes regularly. Students are responsible to make­up the work that they missed during their absence. Unexplained absences or absences without appropriate excuses will result in lower grades, especially when it affects the participation of class work and activities. Absence of more than 20% of the class may result in failing of the course.

Report Cards
A copy of a transcript of every student’s academic record indicating his/her standing is mailed to the student’s home at the end of each semester.

Refund Policy
Refunds are made at the option of LICM for conditions beyond the student’s control such as the student’s obligation to join the military services, having serious health problems, or other emergency situations that the Committee of Refunds decides to accept. All requests must be accompanied by the appropriate certifications and proofs.
