At Edmonds College, it's the VPSS. The student submits a request for leave, I approve/deny. If the request is approved, I send the student an email/letter that they give to their faculty. The student then works with the faculty directly on any appropriate accommodation for missing the class(es).

Good Afternoon Colleagues:
We are in the process of updating our process/protocols re: the Student Absence for Reasons of Faith or Conscience.

The question is:  Does the VPSA or the VPI facilitate and approve the request at your institution?

The policy is below

Postsecondary educational institutions must develop policies to accommodate student absences to allow students to take holidays for reasons of faith or conscience or for organized activities conducted under the auspices of a religious denomination, church, or religious organization, so that students' grades are not adversely impacted by the absences.
