Procedure

Religious Holiday Observance

A student who plans to miss one or more class sessions for religious observance, whether the religious holiday is recognized by the State of New Jersey or not, must notify the course instructor as soon as possible but no later than prior to the date of the religious holiday or the 50% refund date of the term in which the student is enrolled in the course (whichever comes first). The course instructor will assist the student in making up any work missed while absent for religious observance but will not penalize the student for the absence.
