  • Summer Absence Policy

    Regular and punctual attendance are expectations of all Summer School students. There are two types of absences: Approved and Not Approved.

    Approved Absences
    Absences for illness, medical or dental appointments or funerals are subject to approval by the Academy Summer School director. The number of such absences allowed during a Summer School course is determined on a case by case basis by the Academy Summer School director and the dean.

    Not Approved Absences
    Absences for family trips, sports trips, driver-license tests, job interviews, employment, summer camp, errands, performances and similar conflicts will fall into the not approved absence category.

    Students will fail a course if they accrue more than two “Not Approved” absences in a five-week or a six-week summer course, more than one “Not Approved” absence in a four-week summer course or any “Not Approved” absences in a three-week summer course.

    Due to the limited number of on-campus meetings in the Senior Capstone course, students will fail this course if they accrue more than one “Not Approved” absence during the on-campus meeting days.

    The School reserves the right to request a doctor’s note to substantiate any absence from class unless previously approved by the director.
  • Withdrawals and Refunds

    Withdrawals
    All complete withdrawals must be submitted in writing to summerschool@punahou.edu.
