Attendance on Religious Holy Days

Students who belong to religious faiths that require observance during work or school days will be excused from class without penalty, if they have provided advanced instructor notification. If such a requested absence results in a student’s inability to fulfill the academic requirement of a course scheduled on that particular day, the instructor must provide an opportunity for the student to make up the requirement without penalty. Students shall not be charged any fees or experience any adverse or prejudicial effects due to absence from coursework due to religious observance.

In the event that a student absence situation cannot be resolved between the student and the class instructor, or either party is aggrieved by the process, appeal shall proceed to the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs.
