Religious Observances

As stated in the Faculty Handbook, the University of Pittsburgh has a tradition of recognizing religious observances of members of the University community in instances where those observances may conflict with University activities.

When such conflict occurs, students and faculty should make every effort to reach mutually agreeable arrangements to reschedule the academic activity or provide a substitute activity or evaluation. Students should be encouraged to alert faculty to the potential for such conflicts as early in the term as possible.
