*Although the University will be in session, no examinations are to be administered on these major Christian and Jewish holy days. (Please note: For those teaching evening classes, Jewish holy days begin at sundown the evening preceding the day that is indicated.) All members of the academic community are also expected to be considerate of and provide appropriate accommodations to students of other faiths when assignments, exams, and other course requirements fall on the major holy days of their religions.
