All religious considerations, with the exception for final exams, should be approved by your professor. Please talk with your instructor first. If they can’t approve or refuse to approve then please complete an Academic Consideration Form. In some cases, you may be asked to verify the holiday or observance.

Religious considerations for final exams MUST be approved in Academic Advising – and you must submit your requests with a minimum two weeks notice. See the University Policy for more information on religious holidays.

NOTE: If you write your accommodated exams through Student Accessibility Services (students with disabilities) you will also need to contact accessible education to set up your makeup exam. Please check your course outline to determine how and when your instructor wants you to contact them. It is important you contact them separately from this Academic Absence approval process – and as soon as you can.
