University of Baltimore

It is the policy of the University of Baltimore that students shall not be penalized because of observance of their religious holidays. Students not attending class because they are observing religious holidays are to be given excused absences if they notify the teacher in advance, which excused absences shall not be counted toward the maximum number of excused absences permitted by faculty policy. Such students shall be given an opportunity to make up within a reasonable time any academic assignments or tests that are missed. Whenever possible, arrangements should be made to make up missed assignments or tests in advance of the specific holiday.
