Holiday Exemption Letter

According to UMD policy, “Students shall not be penalized because of observances of their religious holidays and shall be given an opportunity, whenever feasible, to make up within a reasonable time any academic assignment that is missed due to individual participation in religious observances.” It is the student’s responsibility to inform professors of any intended absences for religious observances in advance.
