Student Religious Accommodations Requests

To ensure a supportive and inclusive environment for all SLCC students, students may request religious accommodations. Religious accommodations may include, but are not limited to, rescheduling an exam, rescheduling an in-class presentation, completing a make-up assignment in place for missed class work, a change for an assignment due date, or having an excused absence from the class. Faculty and staff will keep your request confidential and will only be shared to evaluate the process, grant a request, or to process a grievance of a denied request.
