In compliance with Section 224-a of the Education Law, students unable, because of religious beliefs, to engage in learning activities (classes, examinations, study or work requirements) on a particular day or days, will not be penalized and will be provided with the means to make up for any study opportunities that may have been missed because of absence for religious reasons. In the case of residencies, students should contact their program chair. (Please refer to the policy on residency attendance.) No adverse or prejudicial effect shall result to any student because of his/her religious beliefs. Since most study arrangements at the college are individually made between student and faculty, students may schedule meetings and other academic activities so they do not conflict with their religious observances. In cases where group meetings are arranged (e.g. residencies or workshops) students who wish to avail themselves of these opportunities but are unable to participate at certain times because of religious beliefs should consult with their course instructor and program chair to make alternative arrangements. No adverse or prejudicial effects shall result to any student because of his or her religious beliefs.
