Religious Accommodations per Accommodations Policy 3500

Harford Community College is committed to supporting your academic success while honoring your religious or faith-based beliefs. We provide reasonable academic accommodations for students to practice their sincerely held faith-based or religious beliefs. In addition, the College provides space on campus to accommodate faith-based or religious practices. We have designated Room 104 in the Student Center as a dedicated space to accommodate faith-based or religious practices. You can visit the Office of Student Life (located in the lower level of the Student Center) to access this space.

Students are allowed, whenever practicable, to make up assignments, quizzes, or exams that are missed due to religious/faith-based observances. It is the student’s responsibility to contact each instructor, in writing, and arrange for make-up assignments or examinations. This must occur two weeks prior to the absence and must identify the religious holiday(s) and the date(s). Programs and courses that require mandated class time, for state licensure for example, may need flexibility with accommodations. All requests shall be treated confidentially.

If you feel you have been denied reasonable academic accommodations to practice your sincerely held faith-based or religious beliefs, Harford Community College has a Student Grievance policy and a Student Grievance Form to complete. The purpose of the policy is to provide a clearly stated, timely, and accessible method of recourse to students who feel that a particular action or series of actions on the part of the College or its employees has violated reasonable, accepted, or stated institutional practices and standards.
