2019-2020 Pitzer Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Religious Holidays

Pitzer College respects its members’ observances of their major religious holidays. Officers of administration and of instruction responsible for the scheduling of required academic activities or essential services try to avoid conflict with such holidays as much as possible. Such activities include examinations, registration and various deadlines that are a part of the Academic Calendar.

When scheduling conflicts prove unavoidable, students will not be penalized for absence because of religious reasons and alternative means will be sought for satisfying the academic requirements involved. If a suitable arrangement cannot be worked out between the students and instructors involved, students and instructors should consult the Dean of Faculty.

Please see https://services.claremont.edu/chaplains/major-religious-holydays/ for month-by-month listings of major religious observances. This list includes the dates for most of the important religious celebrations of the major religions. This list is by no means meant to be comprehensive. For details of religious services and observances on campus please see the chaplain’s website at https://services.claremont.edu/chaplains or contact the Chaplains at chaplains@claremont.edu or 909-621-8824.
