Religious Accommodations Policy

Perry Technical Institute will make good faith efforts to provide reasonable religious accommodations for students to observe religious holidays. This policy will apply to students who have sincerely held religious practices or beliefs that conflict with a scheduled course/program requirement. Students requesting religious accommodation should submit a written request directly to their department head within the first two weeks of the beginning of the quarter.

Being absent from class or other educational responsibilities does not excuse students from keeping up with any information shared or expectations set during the missed class. Students are responsible for obtaining any materials and information provided during their absence. The student shall work with the instructor and department head to determine a schedule for making up missed work.

Examples of religious accommodations may include: rescheduling of an exam or giving a make-up exam for the student in question, altering the time of a student’s presentation, and allowing extra-credit assignments to substitute for missed class work or arranging for an increased flexibility in assignment due dates.
