Commonly-recognized religious holidays 2022–2023

Here is a list of the most commonly recognized religious holidays. However, this list is not all inclusive;  students may choose to observe a holiday from a tradition not reflected in this list. Any student who requires an accommodation based on their religious observance must request one by following the procedure outlined in Academic Regulation 1-15.

Note that holiday dates are generally determined by the religion’s own calendar and may therefore vary by year in the secular (Gregorian) calendar.
