Students in need of accommodation for religious observance are asked to speak to their instructors within a week of receiving their syllabus.

Please note that Rosh Hoshana falls on the eve of September 18, 2020 so students in need of accommodation should speak to their instructors right away.

Alternative assignments are considered a "reasonable accommodation" under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
