Accommodations for Religious Observances

August 30, 2021
Categories: |

Dear Carolina Students,

Again this year, our academic calendar overlaps with a number of religious holidays.

We understand that you may need to balance your religious observations with your academic studies, and so we want to make sure that you understand the process for requesting religious accommodations. As needed, you may request religious accommodations by completing the Religious Accommodation Request Form and sending it to the Religious Accommodations Advisory Committee (RAAC) at religiousaccommodations@unc.edu.

For those who observe holidays that occur around the beginning of the academic year, you are encouraged to submit your request form as soon as possible.

The Provost’s office has communicated to faculty with a reminder about these holidays and a request for flexibility regarding attendance and deadlines that coincide with religious observances.

We hope this resource is helpful in supporting both your academic success and your pursuit of your faith. If you have questions about the policy or the process for requesting accommodations, you may reach out to the RAAC at religiousaccommodations@unc.edu or to the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office (EOC).

Sincerely,

Amy Johnson
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
