    1. There is a scheduling conflict between your sincerely held religious beliefs and taking the exam or meeting the academic requirements; and
    2. You have notified your instructor within the first three weeks of the beginning of classes (first week of summer or interim courses) of the specific days or dates that you will request relief from an examination or academic requirement.
  2. Your instructor will accept the sincerity of your religious beliefs at face value and keep your request confidential.
  3. Your instructor will schedule a make-up exam or requirement before or after the regularly scheduled exam or requirement.
  4. You may file any complaints regarding compliance with this policy with the Affirmative Action Officer in Human Resources.

Safety and Health Policy
