Attendance & Leave

Holiday Schedule


Faculty, Administration and Staff employees enjoy ten paid holidays. Some Temporary Employees are eligble for paid holidays, see below.

The University President may approve floating holidays each calendar year. These are generally announced during the Fall Semester.  While most offices will close, there will be exceptions due to the nature of work performed.  These decisions are made by the Vice Presidents and Deans on a case-by-case basis.
