RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS
Because of the extraordinary variety of religious affiliations of the University student body and staff, the 
Academic Calendar makes no provisions for religious holidays. However, it is University policy, to respect 
the faith and religious obligations of the individual. Students with classes or examinations that conflict with 
their religious observances are expected to notify their instructors well in advance so that mutually 
agreeable alternatives may be worked out.
