Appropriate dress is requested in the stu- dios and on school grounds. Political and religious events are not allowed.
For reasons of safety and in accordance with the law on public health, smoking in the buildings is not permitted.

Students are asked to comply with class timetables.
These schedules may be modi ed as may holidays, in particular in between quarters. Students will be informed of any changes by the school.
1. The administration reserves the right to take disciplinary measures which may include de nitive expulsion for those who miss too many classes.
2. When a student wants to miss a class for any reason and for any length of time, he or she must request per- mission from the administration. He or she will then be considered absent.
c. Late arrivals
Arriving late to class is not permitted. Disciplinary measures will be taken against students who arrive late too often. Late arrivals are not recorded in the event of justi ed force majeure such as, for example, delays caused by the SNCF or the RATP.
Students at the academy have chosen to attend in order to ful l their vocation. It would therefore be di cult to understand students becoming discouraged and losing hope in their future. While grades may be lower at times, a lack of e ort, whether technical or analytical, is not permitted. Attendance and perseverance are essential all year long. Students who slack on their work for too long may face disciplinary action.
a. At the end of each quarter, all of the work completed is graded, allowing stu- dents to follow their progression.
b. The school reserves the right to keep students’ best artwork in its archives and may post, photocopy and reproduce that artwork.
c. Quarterly jury
At the end of each quarter, students of all levels go before a jury composed of the teaching team, the administration and the supervising instructor. This jury evaluates the students and reviews their work for the quarter. After the jury has met, students will receive a transcript of their grades.
A warning is not a penalty; it is given to help students understand any situation that may be detrimental to them. Students who have received a warning may face disciplinary action if the situation does not improve.
Expulsion may be proposed by the school administration at any time of year, without warning or prior temporary sus- pension, for a student who, through lack of work or e ciency, lack of discipline, poor attitude or poor behaviour, may be considered undesirable to the school.
In the event of a proposed expulsion, the student is informed by registered letter. A committee composed of the director and three instructors chosen by the student then meets and the student is invited to defend him- or herself.
Following this hearing, the committee deliberates. De nitive expulsion may
be delivered by a majority vote in the committee. In the event of a tie vote, the director has the nal say.
