The University shall reasonably accommodate its students who are unable to fulfill their regular duties on the occasion of a religious observance. Students who are unable to attend class or take examinations for religious reasons shall be given information needed to make up classes and work missed, including examinations. Students should make arrangements for their absence in advance through established procedures for verifying absences.

The University's Discrimination Complaint Procedures are available through the Office of Civil Rights to students who believe they have been discriminated against under this policy.
