Students wishing to explore a possible Dean’s Excuse for fall religious observances must contact the College Chaplain or a Class Dean no later than noon Sept. 9. Please compare dates on your class syllabi with dates you may need to request a Dean’s Excuse for religious observance. A comprehensive list of holidays may be found on the Interfaith Calendar provided by the Office of Religious and Spiritual Life. Requests will only be considered for observances that require your absence from class.
If your request is granted, you and your professors will be notified.
We also encourage all students to take this opportunity to review Lafayette’s Dean’s Excuse policy, particularly the situations that are and are not covered by the policy.
If you have questions about this process or about religious observances in general, please contact Chaplain Alex Hendrickson or your Class Dean.
