Colgate’s policy is that exams should not be scheduled, and papers should not become due, on any major religious holiday or on the subsequent day. Every effort will be made not to schedule major college events on these days.
Colgate recognizes the following as major religious holidays:
- Rosh Hashanah
- Yom Kippur
- The first two days of Passover
- Good Friday
- The first day of Eid al-Fitr
- The first day of Eid al-Adha
Colgate embraces our increasingly diverse and multicultural campus community, and recognizes that some religious holidays observed by students are not included in the list above.
With respect to such holidays, students are entitled to full and equal accommodation. Students whose conscientious religious observance requires that they observe holidays other than those specified should inform their instructors well in advance. In such cases, each instructor and student shall arrange an accommodation consistent with the policy described above (including rescheduling exams or assignments, class absences, and so on).
Please consult the Office of the Chaplains for a detailed calendar of religious holidays and for further questions on religious observance.

The schedule for the first day of classes is determined by the Office of the Registrar.
The final exam schedule is determined by the Office of the Registrar.
