Religious Holiday Observation

It is the policy of the NSHE to be sensitive to the religious obligations of its students.  Any student missing classes, quizzes, examinations or any other class or lab work because of the observance of religious holidays shall, whenever possible, be given an opportunity during that semester to make up the missed work.  The make up option will apply to the religious holiday absence only.  It shall be the responsibility of the student to notify the instructor in writing, according to the policy of the institution offering the class, if the student intends to participate in a religious holiday which does not fall on state holidays or periods of class recess.  This policy shall not apply in the event that administering the assignment at an alternate time would impose an undue hardship on the instructor or the institution, which could not reasonably have been avoided.

Any student who is denied a make-up option after appropriately notifying the instructor, shall have the right to appeal that decision through the normal appeal process in place at that institution.
