Here is a case of a Canadian university student completing his BA and doesn't want to group work with women.

Student puts in a request based on his religion asking not to do work with women. Professor says no, Dean say's yes, but Professor over rides Dean after getting backup. Backup coming from other professors with motion and Jewish and Muslim scholars who say student X can interact with women as long not having sex.

Professor also uses an example; if any students request to be excluded from black students it certainly would be an automatic no, even when the student could use the bible for their defense. Student accepts and is taking course.
