School Discipline

A student’s registration at PATTS College of Aeronautics automatically binds him to all the rules, regulations and traditions of the institution. PATTS College reserves the right to dismiss a student any time if his scholastic record and moral conduct prove that he will not profit from the education offered.
If the student’s parents reside in the province, the student should have a guardian in Manila. The guardian should be a responsible person duly authorized in writing by the parents to assume his responsibilities towards the student and act in behalf of the parents.

Prompt, exact and courteous obedience is expected of a student at all times. He should obey authority rather than the person exercising authority; hence, even a student to whom authority has been delegated should be obeyed. Although the College cannot be held responsible for a student’s conduct outside the College premises, undesirable conduct outside, as well as inside the premises, may be a cause for dismissal.
If a student is proved guilty of serious moral faults, or if his conduct is found harmful to the best interest of PATTS College, or if he has an unwholesome influence on fellow student, or if he is not amenable to advice, he is subject to strict disciplinary action.

If a student disregards the rules and regulations of PATTS College by violating them, this may be a basis for suspension or immediate dismissal/expulsion. The disciplinary action will depend upon the nature and/or frequency of the offense.

 
Attendance in Classes
  1. The Student must report immediately on the first day of classes and have his assurance by the instructors pronouncement of his name from the class cards given, otherwise, he must re-check his schedule according to his original copy in the registration card.
  2. Regular and punctual attendance in all classes is required of all students.
    In case of absence, a re-admission slip from the Office of the Academic Affairs must be secured before a student may be admitted to class again.

“A student who has incurred absences of more than twenty percent (20) of the required number of class and laboratory periods in a given time should not be given credit”. (Section IX, No. 151, Manual of Regulations for Private School.)
