University of Toronto’s religious accommodations policy accommodates students who observe religious Holy Days that might conflict with academic activities like classes, tests and so on.
Students have a responsibility to alert members of the teaching staff in a timely fashion about upcoming religious observances and anticipated absences. If you have questions about how to ask for an accommodation, you can discuss the process with staff at the Multi-Faith Centre by emailing email@example.com.
NOTE: Documentation from faith leaders is not required.

Considerations & Exceptions
- Students should email instructors with a request in writing for religious accommodation.
- Students should check with their instructors or registrar’s office to learn about accommodation policies that may be specific to their department.
Faculty and staff responsibilities
Instructors are expected to make reasonable effort to avoid scheduling tests, exams or other compulsory activities at these times. If that is not possible, instructors should give students the opportunity to make up for work that they miss.
