SECTION FC.3


STUDENT
ATTENDANCE
ABSENCE DURING A RELIGIOUS HOLY DAY

Procedure


ABSENCE DURING A RELIGIOUS HOLY DAY


A student who is absent from class for the observance of a religious holy day shall be allowed to take an examination or complete an assignment scheduled for that day within a reasonable time after the absence. However, the student must notify the instructor of each class scheduled on the date that the student would be absent for a religious holy day.  A “religious holy day” means a holy day observed by a religion whose places of worship are exempt from property taxation under Section 11.20, Tax Code.

Any student who wishes to dispute a decision concerning his/her absence should follow the Student/Instructor Conflict Resolution procedures in a timely fashion and as described in the current Navarro College Student Handbook.
