Accommodations for Religious Observances

March 18, 2021

Dear Carolina Students, 

This year, our academic calendar overlaps more significantly with a number of religious holidays, including Ramadan, Passover, Good Friday and Easter, and Ridv├ín. 

The Provost recently emailed all faculty members, instructors and teaching assistants with a reminder about these holidays and a request for flexibility regarding attendance and deadlines that coincide with religious observances. 

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 for consideration. 

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 or to the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office (EOC)

Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
