Religion and Exams

TO: CAMPUS COMMUNITY

In compliance with Section 92640(a) of the California Education Code, the University must accommodate requests for alternate examination dates at a time when that activity would not violate a student's religious creed.

At UCLA, accommodation for alternate examination dates should be worked out directly between the student and the faculty member involved.

General Guidelines:

Students should make such requests of the instructor during the first two weeks of the quarter, or as soon as possible after an examination date is announced by the instructor.

Students unable to reach a satisfactory arrangement with their instructor should contact the Campus Ombuds or the Office of the Dean of Students.

Instructors who have questions, or who wish to verify the nature of the religious event or practice involved, should contact the Campus Ombuds Office or the Office of the Dean of Students.
