Students whose religious beliefs may cause them to miss classes, examinations or studio reviews must inform their instructors and provide documentation of their religious commitment. Although students are not penalized for missing class sessions and activities for such cause, their instructors may require that they make up any missed assignments within a reasonable amount of time and subject to published deadlines.
