*While Texas A&M at Qatar’s proposed schedule does NOT observe Thanksgiving, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Emancipation Day, or Independence Day as required by System Policy 31.04, Holidays, the Board may choose to waive this requirement in light of the fact that Texas A&M at Qatar is required to observe seven days of state/cultural holidays (of 13 total days) and also attempts to adopt a schedule similar to that of other academic institutions in Education City.
Texas A&M University is required in its agreement with the Qatar Foundation to ‘abide by the applicable laws and regulations of the State of Qatar, and shall respect the cultural, religious and social customs of the State of Qatar.’**The State of Qatar issued an Emiri decree that the 2nd Tuesday of February each year would be a required holiday. This holiday, Qatar National Sports Day, is to promote sports and physical activity.

***The Eid holidays will automatically shift if the State of Qatar starts these holidays on a different day than proposed above. The number of days for the holidays will not change.
