Religious Observance Dates

Please refer to the Religious Observance Policy and Procedures.

Below is a list of religious observance dates for the 2021-2022 academic year. While not exhaustive, this list will provide notice to the faculty of the religious observance dates of many faiths practiced by our students. 

To the extent possible, faculty should avoid scheduling examinations or assigning papers, presentations, or other academic requirements on any of the identified religious observance dates. When this is unavoidable, professors must give students, who have notified their professors in advance, the opportunity for equivalent make-up work.
