Manual of Policies
A document detailing the conduct of course, academic work, discipline, rules for availing leave etc. will be made available to the students within fifteen days from the commencement of first year classes.
Strict discipline is enforced right from day one at the College Campus. Any manner of indiscipline will not be tolerated as it is the very opposite of the ideals for which the institution stands committed. Parents should actively co-operate with the management to avoid taking any heart-burning decision by the management for indisciplined behaviour. Our Campus is declared as a ‘NON SMOKING CAMPUS’. Any student who violates this rule will have to pay a fine of Rs.100/- in the first instance and Rs. 250/- on repeating the offence. Thereafter, suitable disciplinary action will be taken as per rules laid down by the College in this respect.
Class timing is from 9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. on all days except first and second Saturdays and Sundays for first year students. List of other holidays will be displayed on the College Notice Board at the beginning of each calendar year.
Students can be in the Campus on all working days up to 8.00 p.m. to make use of library and computer facilities or to carry out group assignments or projects.
University regulations in the matter of attendance will be strictly enforced. The students should co-operate with the College authorities in the matter and in all other activities aimed at their welfare. No relaxation or concession will be extended by the management.
Apart from the end term university examinations, we follow a system of continuous evaluation for assessment of student performance. Weightage is given for internal assessment based on attendance, class participation, assignments, lab work, conduct on campus, punctuality, utilisation of library and computer centre etc.

All students should wear uniform as above within a fortnight from the day of commencement of the programme. After this date, students who are not in the prescribed uniform will not be permitted to sit in the class.
PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION
Challenges of modern times demand innovative systems of teaching and training. In any such good system, parents have a very active role to play. They should always be in touch with the faculty and management of the institution to be in the know of what is happening at the College. We give great emphasis to this aspect as the students who join Architecture Colleges are in their formative years. To mould them as fine human beings and excellent professionals, we need the help of parents.
