Procedure 3.07.02 - Religious Observances for Continuing Education Classes

Students are permitted to request up to two (2) excused absences per class each semester for religious observances required by the faith of the student. Continuing education students will be granted the opportunity to make-up work missed while absent from class for excused religious observances. The following outlines student and instructor responsibilities associated with these requests:

  1. Students must provide written request(s) for absence(s) to their instructor(s) at least one week in advance of religious observance. Written request should include: student name, course title, date of absence and brief description of religious observance. Written requests will become part of class file(s) and will be turned in with attendance sheets at end of each class.
  2. Instructor(s) will assist students on a case-by-case basis to make-up missed work.

The above procedure does not supersede continuing education attendance requirements for satisfactory course completion.
