Dress Code for 2020-21

Canterbury believes that the classroom dress should reflect the seriousness of academic pursuits. Therefore, all clothing must be neat, clean, respectful, and professional and worn throughout the entirety of the Academic Day: from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday; from 8:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday and Saturday; and, during Sunday Mass and Brunch.  All students participating in class, whether in person or online, are expected to adhere to this dress code. Exceptions to Canterbury Dress Code must be pre-approved by the Student Life Office and/or Canterbury Health Center Personnel.
