Absence for Religious Reasons

University Policy

GMS Policy

The Division of Graduate Medical Sciences (GMS), in scheduling classes on religious holidays, intends that students observing these holidays be given a reasonable opportunity to make up the work. Students should endeavor to inform the instructor(s) or the course manager(s) at the beginning of the course(s) of the planned absence so that arrangements can be made to make up exams and/or other required assignments. Faculty members who wish to observe such holidays will arrange for another faculty member to meet with their class(es) or for canceled class(es) to be rescheduled.
