Religious Observance accommodations (policy)

The university’s Discrimination policy in Section GG states “Any student who, because of religious beliefs, is unable to attend classes on a particular day shall be excused from attendance requirements and from any examination or other assignment on that day. The student shall provide a completed “Student Religious Accommodation Request” form to the instructor by the end of the second week of the term and make up the examination or other assignment missed because of the absence.

This policy is operationalized through the “Student Religious Accommodation Request” process found on the University Registrar website. The Office of the Provost website provides a syllabus statement on this subject found under resources below.
