Religious Observances Policy. In accordance with regent and faculty policy, faculty are asked not to schedule mandatory exercises on days when religious observances may cause substantial numbers of students to be absent from the university. Some religions mark observances over multiple days, which may begin at sunset on the day preceding the posted date(s) of the holiday. For a listing, though not exhaustive, of religious holidays, see the Interfaith Calendar. Any student with a conflict between an academic requirement and any religious observance must be given an alternative means of meeting the academic requirement. A student’s claim of a religious conflict, which may include travel time, should be accepted at face value.
For detailed information about the academic calendar, see this link.
Days: M Monday; T Tuesday; W Wednesday; R Thursday; F Friday; S Saturday; N Sunday.
The Academic Calendar is subject to change.
