Cazenovia College encourages students to participate in observance of their religious obligations and practices. No student will be denied admission or be suspended because religious obligations and practices may prevent participation in any examination, study or work requirement. An equivalent opportunity will be provided to each student, at no charge, to make up an examination, study or work requirement for absences due to religious commitments. Any student who intends to be absent from classes to observe religious obligations and practices must notify each instructor in writing by the end of the first week of classes of the term in which the religious event occurs. If the religious event should occur during the opening of the College or the first week of classes, the student must notify the Assistant Dean of Students in writing of absences due to religious commitments.
