If you do not have final exams on a given day during exam week, you are not expected to attend chapel on Monday or Wednesday or the Student Body program on Tuesday. However, you need to submit a non-recurring exemption request by 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, in order to be excused.
Please note that your recurring semester exemption does not excuse chapel absences during exam week, and recurring chapel exemptions for part-time students are not honored during exam week. Attendance expectations during exam week are based on your exam schedule with exceptions made for regularly scheduled work.
The appeals committee will meet as usual Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 21 and 22. The appeals committee office is not open on Wednesday.

Please take advantage of the opportunity to demonstrate what we have been learning together this semester while you are away.
