University Policy 409, Religious Accommodation for Students

  August 27, 2010

Status: Revised

This University Policy was developed in response to a recently-enacted North Carolina law, codified at NC General Statute 116-11(3a), which requires UNC Charlotte to (1) authorize a minimum of two excused absences each academic year for religious observances required by the faith of a student; and (2) provide students the opportunity to make up any tests or other work missed due to an excused absence for a religious observance. In order to facilitate compliance with this new law while mitigating the burden on faculty, the Policy establishes a procedure for students to request accommodations for religious observances through the submission of a request form prior to the census date of each semester. The final Policy will be issued in the near future.
