NYU Law is committed to fostering a supportive and inclusive environment for community members of all faiths. In alignment with the University Calendar Policy on Religious Holidays, the Office of Student Affairs works with students to identify reasonable accommodations that may be needed in observance of religious holidays and practices. Accommodations are made on a case-by-case basis and may include exam modifications, deferments, assistance with course scheduling, and recording of classes for absences related to religious observance.
Please contact the Office of Student Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss accommodations. When possible, please reach out at the beginning of the semester so that there is ample time for us to work with you and coordinate the appropriate accommodations.
At NYU, there are a number of other resources that support religious and spiritual life:
- The Office of Global Spiritual Life offers resources, spiritual life advising, interfaith programming, and trainings to encourage dialogue about religion on campus and beyond.
- There are multiple religious centers and prayer and meditation spaces on campus that serve all members of the NYU community.
- NYU Law’s Christian Law Students Association, Jewish Law Students Association, and Muslim Law Students Association help build community around shared religious identities.
