I’m religiously observant and cannot attend classes or field on religious holidays. What do I do?
Please notify your advisor, your instructors and your field instructor of the upcoming holiday(s) and note what day(s) you will not be able to attend classes and field. They can help you develop a plan for making up any missed work or days in field. It is the University Senate’s policy to give students who are absent because of their religious beliefs “an equivalent opportunity to register for classes or make up any examination, study, or work requirements.” You cannot be penalized for absence due to religious beliefs, and alternative means can be sought for satisfying your academic requirements.
