University Policy—Religious Holidays

The School, in scheduling classes on religious holidays, intends that students observing those holidays be given ample opportunity to make up work. Faculty members who wish to observe religious holidays will arrange for another faculty member to meet their classes or for canceled classes to be rescheduled. The calendar reflects entering student start dates; for specific continuing students enrollment dates, please contact the Registrar’s Office.
