Classes on Religious Holidays
If you are unable to attend class or take an exam on a specific date because it is a religious holiday in your faith, contact your instructor as soon as possible.
According to university policies regarding religious holidays, you will be given reasonable accommodation and an opportunity to complete work that was missed.
You must request accommodation in writing by the end of the second week of the semester by completing a request for course accommodation due to religious observance form. No additional fees or charges of any kind will be issued nor should any adverse or prejudicial effects result from your request.
While campus policy requires instructors to make reasonable accommodations if you must miss an exam, assignment, or other academic exercise because of a required religious observance, it is not campus policy to require accommodations if you wish to travel over the course of an extended period of time to share a holiday with your family. It is, however, appropriate to grant accommodations for a few hours after the holiday if the observance includes fasting.
