University Policy on Class Absence for Religious Observation

University policy ensures that no student will be penalized as a result of religious observance, but does require advance notification. So if you'll be leaving campus to celebrate a religious holiday, or missing class because you are participating in religious activities on campus, you should email your instructors at least a week in advance to notify them of a planned absence. 

How do I find my instructor's email address?
You can find the email addresses for your instructors on the University's online directory (People Finder).

Who can I contact for assistance if I encounter any problems?
If you encounter any problems, you can contact the Ombuds Office, the department head, or the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life for assistance.
