Religious Holidays Policy

submitted by

In recognition that observance of recognized religious holidays may affect students’ classroom attendance and the submission of graded work in courses, Augsburg University accommodates religious observances and holidays of diverse religious traditions. This policy reflects the university’s commitment to being responsive to our students’ diverse religious beliefs and to encourage students’ spiritual development.

Students are expected to formally notify their instructors at least two weeks in advance that they will miss class in order to observe a religious holiday. Students are to complete the Religious Observance Notification Form.

The Religious Observance Notification Form must be submitted online. It is routed to the faculty member faculty member and the University Pastors in the Campus Ministry Office. Should either of these parties raise questions about the request, they will contact the student or the faculty member’s academic dean.

The complete policy is available through the Office of Academic Affairs.
