Student Awareness and Involvement

All students need to seek information on and abide by the regulations and all other official communications of the Institute. Students are fully informed of the function, structure and aims of the Institute.


Students are expected to attend all classes, labs, field trips and other related instructional activities regularly and punctually.

  • A student who for some reason abstains from class should explain in writing the reason for the absence.
  • A student who misses an announced examination (other than a final examination), because of illness or other good reason must immediately upon returning to class, present to the instructor a report from a physician or other acceptable explanation for the absence.
  • A student who for good reason must be absent from the Institute for an extended period of time must apply for a leave of absence.
  • Cases of students with consecutive absences will be reported to the Program Director and to the student’s parents or guardians.
  • Absence from classes does not excuse students from course work or their obligation to complete assignments on time.


Being late for classes is not only detrimental to the academic progress of the latecomer, but is disruptive for the entire class. Students may be marked absent. Persistent offenders maybe suspended from the college.

To be an effective institute, we must, as individuals and teams, take responsibility not just for our own work and ourselves, but also for others. We should support each other in this process.

ITHM strives to maintain a safe and secure environment for all members of the community and thus does not tolerate physical violence used by or against the members of the community. Students are expected to avoid all physical conflicts, confrontations, and altercations unless their own safety or that of another is at extreme jeopardy.

  • Grossly Offensive
  • Indecent
  • Intended to misinform & thereby cause annoyance, inconvenience, or needless anxiety to others.

You should take care when using electronic communications as messages can easily be misunderstood. The institute takes all forms of harassment very seriously.

Books & Stationery

The Institute provides students, where applicable, with the relevant course materials. The textbooks and other course materials from part of class work must be brought to the class by students. Students are expected to buy their own textbooks and stationery.

Library Books

The books in ITHM’s library constitute some of its most valuable assets, and it is essential that all members of the community have reasonable access to them. A student who violates the use and lending policies of the library without authorization or mutilation, defacement, or abuse of any library book or library resources will ordinarily lead to formal disciplinary action, including requirement to withdraw.

Breach of Discipline

Students have the responsibility to respect the right of others, to refrain from disruptive, threatening, intimidating, harassing or destructive behavior. Breach of discipline is dealt with by the Disciplinary Committee.

A student shall be deemed to have committed a breach of discipline if he/she:

Student Assessment

During the semester session the progress of the students is continuously monitored through class tests, quizzes and assignments. A mid-term examination followed by an end-semester examination and quizzes and assignments. A mid-term examination followed by an end-semester examination and a project to be completed within a stipulated period of time, forms a reasonable assessment of the achievements and caliber of the students.

The weight age of all such exercises is shown below:

  • Assignments
  • Classroom
  • Mid-Term Exam
  • Final Exam

Academic Standard

Any student, who maintains a CGPA of 2.0 or more, shall be promoted to next class, irrespective of the number of failures in the semester. A student with CGPA between 1.5 and 2.0 shall be placed on probation, which he\she has to obtain “A” or “B” grade. This concession will be allowed only once, and incase of failure to achieve the required GPA (2.0 and above) the candidate shall be removed from the Institute rolls.

Determination OF GPA

The credit hours are calculated by the class hours allocated to a course per week. The CGPA (Cumulative Grade Points Average) for a semester shall be determined by the sum of the product of grade points and credit hours of the course divided by total credit hours for the semester.

CGPA = {Sum of (Credit Hours x GPA)} divided by [Total Credit Hours]

The relationship between the grades and grade point average (GPA) is as shown below:

Grades Numerical Points
A+ 90 & above
A 80 to 89%
B 70 to 79%
C 60 to 69%
D 50 to 59%


The students are awarded one of the following grades representing their level of achievement during the course of their studies:

A+ Superior
A Excellent
B Good
C Satisfactory
D Pass
F Failed
I Incomplete
W Withdraw

Students will be informed of their progress in each course by grades scored by them in class tests, quizzes, assignments and projects. The students will receive a notice halfway through each semester, if their grades are below a “C”. The grade reports are issued at the end of each semester.

Substitution of Course

The management incase of some unforeseen circumstances, reserves the right to offer an alternative course in place of an already planned course within seven days of the start of a semester session.

Transfer of Credit Hours

ITHM accepts transferred credits earned at any recognized Institute, and will exempt the students from having to repeat those courses. Similarly our credits are transferable to other recognized Institutes of the world.

Cancellation of Classes

The Institute reserves the right to cancel any scheduled courses for which sufficient number of enrolments do not turn up.

Training Programs

As an important phase of their vocational training, every student is required to participate in an eight/twelve weeks internship training period, after having completed his/her Diploma program. During this period they are attached with the hospitality/tourism industry unit to gain practical experience and sharpen his/her expertise. They are required to submit a written report after completing their assignment. A committee of experts would review these reports and recommend measures to be taken for furthering benefits of such exercises for the future.
