In constructing the academic calendar, religious holy days will not be the sole factor in determining the days on which classes will be held or suspended. However, it is the policy of the faculty:

  • that students be encouraged to observe their appropriate religious holy days;
  • that instructors strive to facilitate this by allowing absence from classes for such purposes, and by trying to ensure that no examinations, written reports, oral reports, other mandatory class assignments are scheduled for or due on such holy days, and
  • that instructors provide ample opportunities for such students to make up work missed on such occasions without penalty.
