Pratt and Trinity College follow the same guidelines for observing religious holidays. If you will miss class work in observance of an officially recognized religious holiday, you should speak directly with your instructor beforehand. Recognized religious holidays are covered by University policy, so no Dean's excuse is needed or issued.
Students who need an official excuse to be absent from class for religious holidays not included on this list should contact one of the Academic Deans that the holiday of concern would necessitate missing class.
If an instructor is unable or unwilling to grant a request, you should consult an Academic Dean. It is the responsibility of each instructor to communicate the University policy to his or her students and to accommodate reasonable requests.
