Accommodations for Religious Holidays and Federal Observances

Antioch College has a system to accommodate students who wish to observe religious or federal holidays on days in which the College is not closed.

It is the responsibility of the student to seek accommodations for religious and federal observances during each term. Students must inform their instructors in writing within the first two weeks of each quarter of their intent to observe the holiday, even when the exact date of the holiday will not be known until later. When alternative arrangements for missed work are possible, they should be made at the earliest opportunity prior to the observance of the holiday with the instructor of record of each enrolled course affected by the student absence.

The College acknowledges the following federal holidays, though College operations may or may not occur on these days:

New Year’s Day Memorial Day Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Independence Day Labor Day Veterans Day
Thanksgiving Day Christmas Day President’s Day

Constitution Day

The United States Government has designated September 17 as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day (also referred to as Constitution Day). To commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution, most years Constitution Day will be celebrated on September 17. If September 17 falls on a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, the College may celebrate Constitution Day during the preceding or following week.

To help students, faculty and staff become well-informed citizens through an awareness of and familiarity with the U.S. Constitution, colleges across Ohio and in the U.S. may celebrate Constitution Day in their own unique ways.
