Excused Absence Procedure - Religious Observance

Wayne Community College students are allowed two (2) excused class days per academic year for religious observances required by the faith of the student. For the purposes of this procedure, an academic year begins on the first day of Fall classes and ends on the last day of Spring classes each year. Students shall be given the opportunity to make up any tests or other work missed due to an excused absence.

  1. Students requesting absence from class must complete a Request for Excused Absence Form,
  2. Have it signed by the Instructor(s), and
  3. Submit it to the Admissions and Records Office for approval within the first seven school days of the semester.

Failure to submit the completed form by the deadline will result in the request being denied. The Admissions and Records Office will provide the student with a copy of the approved/denied form. Students should keep the copy for their records.
