Code of Conduct Students
At the time of admission each student shall sign a declaration on the Admission Form, that she will abide by all the rules and regulations of the college, and accept the decision of the Principal in all matters as final. Her parents/guardians will also endorse this declaration.
1. All students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner worthy of a citizen in the college community. Such conduct is based on respect for the dignity and rights of individuals, public and personal propriety and personal and academic honesty. All students are answerable to the Principal for their conduct in the college, and for their behaviour outside college, if it adversely affects the good of the college. Appropriate action may be taken when the principles of equity, justice and morality are affected.
2. Insubordination and unbecoming language or conduct in any form is sufficient reason for the dismissal of a student.
3. Attendance at all college functions is compulsory.
4. Absence from college must be justified in writing and if illness is the cause, a medical certificate must be submitted;
5. The CBCS System, of University of Calcutta accords marks for good attendance every semester.
6. Internal assessment and tutorial marks are considered by the University of Calcutta for grading the student. Absence at tutorials or internal assessment is considered as failure.
7. Those who absent themselves from internal examinations without the express permission of the Principal, make themselves liable for disciplinary action. Such absence must be justified in writing and in case of illness by a medical certificate. These letters and medical certificates with a covering letter from the parent or guardian of the student are separate from those intended to justify absence from college at other times. Attendance below the University of Calcutta norms will mean loss of the semester.
8. Although illness or other serious circumstances maybe considered valid reasons for absence from lectures, tests, tutorials, examinations, etc., there remains no evidence of a satisfactory knowledge of the courses concerned. Failure to submit assignments, unjustified absence from tests etc. will seriously prejudice the student’s academic record. If after a warning, a student persistently continues not to conform to college requirements, she can be refused admission/continuation for the next academic year.

12. Wearing the College identity card is compulsory.
13. The use of mobile phones by the pupils in the college building is not permitted.
14. Maintaining the cleanliness of the College is the responsibility of each student.
