PENN MSA RELIGIOUS ABSENCE EMAIL TEMPLATE
Dear [PROFESSOR NAME],
My name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a student enrolled in [CLASS NAME] this semester. While reviewing the class syllabus, I noticed that there is a conflict with [SPECIFIC DATE/ASSIGNMENT/TEST] due to my religious observance. The Islamic holiday of [HOLIDAY NAME] prohibits me from attending class or working on assignments. I wanted to notify you that I will be unable to attend class on [DATE] or do any assignments or exams in accordance with the Provost’s Policy on Secular and Religious Holidays. Based on my understanding of the syllabus, I believe I will need accommodations, and I would like to discuss arrangements to make up missed work at your earliest convenience.
