  • GENERAL NORMS
    1: Attendance
    The university prescribes a minimum of 75% attendance. The college insists on regular attendance at all classes. So unless there is a real necessity, no one should absent oneself from classes.
    When absenting from class, a leave letter duly signed by the parent or guardian should be presented to the Co-coordinator in advance. If the absence is due to any unforeseen circumstance, the leave letter should be submitted on the day of return.
    Students going for Sports, NCC/NSS camps, cultural competitions and other extracurricular activities as on duty should get prior permission from the Principal through the Lecturer- in-charge of these programs.
    The attendance shall be communicated to the students at regular intervals. Frequent absence shall be reported to the Guardian. .
    Failure to observe rules regarding the attendance will entail the loss of attendance and this may disqualify the student from appearing for the University Examinations.
    In case of prolonged absence on account of medical reasons, a medical certificate ought to be submitted to the Principal within fifteen days of absence.

    2.Points of politeness
    “Good manners are expressions of a refined character”. Xavierites shall aim at observing certain norms of polite behavior: Always be punctual in attending to various chores and their classes. When a Lecturer enters the class, gently rise and remain standing till he/she sits or signals to be seated. Practice and promote respect and cordiality among the students and the staff. Handle the college
    property with care. Do not disfigure walls and furniture. It is part of politeness to offer to make good the damage done to any college property. During class hours, students shall not be found loitering anywhere on the college campus. Transacting any work in the college campus during class hours is to be avoided by all.
    After the second bell, strict silence is to be observed in the class by all the students. If the lecturer happens to come late, students shall maintain silence inside the class. During free hours, students are expected to make good use of the library. Insubordination to Lecturers, habitual neglect of class work, vulgarity in word and deed, deliberate vandalism, stealing, being a nuisance in the class, habitual neglect of study are sufficient reasons for disciplinary action.
    Only the electronic items which are necessary in persuasion of the course are allowed to be brought to the college and used as per the directions of the Lecturers. Do not use mobile phones in the College Campus. Obscene books and periodicals, smoking, use of alcohol and drugs in any form, are strictly forbidden in the college campus. Leave the toilets clean after use. The students are forbidden to bring transistors, crackers, explosives and other dangerous materials to the College. Queue up at counters waiting for your turn without usurping the turn of others.
    The Students are expected to come in simple clothes, formal or informal but decent ones. Let your person and dress be neat and clean without show. Personal cleanliness, overall smartness, the neatness of the class rooms and cleanliness and beauty of the college campus need to be maintained.
    Let your parents and guardians be proud of your conduct at home and in society.
    Be aware of the massive amount of sacrifice that your parents and the nation are making for your all round education.

    3: RAGGING
    The Government and the University have issued detailed instructions with regard to the banning of any sort of RAGGING on the college campus by any student. Instant dismissal is the usual punishment for any offenders in this regard.

    4 : HINTS FOR EFFECTIVE STUDY
    Association with students who are earnest in their studies is a great help to study.
    No amount of private study or tuition can substitute active listening in class. Avoid private tuition, which reduces self-confidence and initiative.
    All assignments should be done neatly and to date. Note down the work assigned for the next day. Never omit a lesson or any assignment given. Revise the work done in class daily. Set aside a fixed time for daily study at home. Remember that asking questions is the key to learning. Never hesitate to ask questions about the subject matter in and out of class. When studying, ready yourself to explain the lesson to another. Pray to God, the source of your talents, for the grace to discover and develop them. Remember that ‘a stitch in time saves nine’.

    5 :LIBRARY AND READING ROOM
    Maintain absolute silence in the Library
    To borrow books from the library, application must be made on printed application slips. The filled in application slips should be handed over to the librarian. Books will be issued only on presentation of the identification card of the student on which his/her photograph has been affixed. For all students a maximum of two books at a time will be allowed. No one is allowed to sub lend the library books, he/she has borrowed, nor get the books on behalf of another. The borrower will be held responsible for any damage done to the books which he/she borrows and in case of serious damage done to the books; he/she will be asked to restitute the damaged book.
    Therefore before leaving the library counter, the student must carefully check the books issued to him/her. If any damage is noticed, it must be reported to the Librarian at once, lest he should be held responsible for it later on. The loss of library books should be immediately reported to the Librarian. Books must be returned to the library on or before the due date stamped on them. If not, overdue charge of Rs.2/- per book per day will be collected from the defaulter.
    Reference books, papers and periodicals shall not be removed from the Reading Room or from the places allotted for them. No books will be issued to those who have not cleared their over-due charges in full. The library shall be open during the college timings on all working days.

  • 6.8. Recommendation to Parents.
    A. The active involvement of parents in the education of their children is very much required in this modern era. This is achieved through the interaction of parents with the teachers and the College Authorities. Class wise parents meetings are held in every term after the exams for analyzing the results and the general performance of the ward in the College and at home. Occasional visits of parents to the College and dialogue with the authorities especially the mentor is very much encouraged. These visits and the interaction with the authorities are to enhance the overall development of the students. To encourage this and to attend to the requests of the parents, records are maintained in the College for the Parents by the Coordinator. The College Administration checks these and addresses the issues regularly.

    6.9 Examinations and Reports.
    Besides the regular class tests there will be official terminal examinations conducted in common for the students on the dates specified in the Handbook. Attendance at examination is compulsory. Students not appearing for the examination without prior permission from the Principal will be seriously dealt with and fined.
    A progress report with details of marks, attendance and remarks of the Principal and the mentor concerning the general behavior of the student will be distributed to the students at the Class wise Parent-Teacher-Student interaction meeting.
