Special arrangements: Any student who, because of a disability,
may require special
arrangements in order to meet course requirements should contact the
instructor as soon as possible to make any necessary arrangements.
The student should present appropriate verification from Student Disability
Services during the instructor's office hours. Please note instructors
are not allowed to provide classroom accommodations to a student until
appropriate verification from Student Disability Services has been provided.
Religious holy days: (1) “Religious holy day” means a holy
day observed by a religion whose places of worship are exempt from property
taxation under Texas Tax Code §11.20.
(2) A student who intends to observe a religious holy day should make that
intention known in writing to the instructor prior to the absence. A student
who is absent from classes for the observance of a religious holy day shall
be allowed to take an examination or complete an assignment scheduled for that
day within a reasonable time after the absence.
(3) A student who is excused under section 2 may not be penalized for
the absence; however, the instructor may respond appropriately if the student
fails to complete the assignment satisfactorily.
