Religious Observance

A student who is absent from school, because of his or her religious beliefs, will be given an equivalent opportunity to register for classes and make up any examination which were missed because of such absence on any particular day or days. No fees of any kind will be charged by the University for making available to such student such equivalent opportunity. 

A student with an exam that conflicts with a religious observance must file an Examination Conflict Form with the Registrar by the date announced each semester by the Registrar.   A student with a registration date or class session that conflicts with a religious observance must notify the Registrar at least two weeks prior to any affected registration or class session.

For specific religious holidays pre-approved by the Law School, Media Services arranges for professors to tape those class sessions.  For more information, contact Media Services at 212.636.7324.
