Part 1. Student Rights
§ 1‑107 Religious Beliefs, Observances, and Practices
(a) Illinois law requires the University to reasonably accommodate its students’ religious beliefs, observances, and practices in regard to admissions, class attendance, and the scheduling of examinations and work requirements. Implementation of the law is specified in this booklet as follows: Class Attendance—§ 1‑501; Examinations—§ 3‑201 to § 3‑204.
(b) Any student may appeal in writing an instructor’s adverse decision to a request based on religious beliefs, observances, and practices to the dean of the academic unit offering the course. Before taking action, the dean or director should request that the instructor explain his or her denial in writing.
