Religious & Holiday Calendars

Claremont Graduate University recognizes the importance of religious holidays to members of its community. Faculty have been encouraged to make reasonable accommodations for student observance of religious holidays, including excused absences, opportunities for make-up work, and alternate or late dates for quizzes, tests, and other course requirements. Students should provide instructors with reasonable notice of desires and/or observance requirements.

As a community reference, the Chaplains Office of the Claremont University Consortium provides a Multi-Religion Holy Days Calendar .
