Illinois State University accepts its responsibility under the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended in 1972, which provides that an employer must make reasonable accommodation to the religious needs of employees. The University will reasonably accommodate its students, faculty, and staff who are unable to fulfill their regular duties on the occasion of a religious observance. Faculty and staff should observe normal procedures for absence from their duties. Students who are unable to attend class or take examinations for religious reasons will be given information needed to make up classes and work which were missed or to take the examination on an alternate, acceptable day.
Questions about this policy should be directed to the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access.
