Attendance & Leave

Holiday Schedule

Faculty, Administration and Staff employees enjoy nine paid holidays as listed below.  Additionally, the President may approve floating holidays each calendar year that are announced at a later date.  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.

Although most Temporary employees are not eligible to be paid for these days off, the following employee groups are paid for holidays:

  • Professional, salaried Temporary.
  • Salaried Graduate Assistants/Associates covered by the collective bargaining agreement.
  • Adjunct faculty who are working their regularly required work schedule.

Regular Staff employees who have successfully completed their probationary period are eligible for one personal holiday each year.
