Fall on campus

UVM students observing religious holidays are entitled to accommodations.

Students have the right to practice the religion of their choice. Each semester students should submit in writing to their instructors by the end of the second full week of classes their documented religious holiday schedule for the semester. Faculty will treat these absences as excused and will provide reasonable accommodation to the student concerning missed instruction, assignments, and exams, including final exams. Any conflicts between student and instructor may be presented for resolution to the course department chair or college dean’s office.

Dates of religious holidays can be found on the Interfaith Calendar. Two versions are available: one is the Interfaith Calendar for the current academic year (PDF), the other is a multi-year Interfaith Calendar (PDF).
