2017 Holiday Schedule

2018 - 2020 Holiday Schedule

The University prepares a holiday schedule on a calendar year basis, and distributes it via e-mail to all departments or offices to be posted where employees have access.

Due to the scheduling of the school term, all holidays may not be observed on their respective calendar dates. However the University's holiday schedule always gives the employee the same number of holidays as approved by the State of Personnel Commission.

When a scheduled holiday falls on Saturday or Sunday, Monday is observed as a holiday unless a special schedule has been adopted.

Full-time or part-time (half-time of more) permanent, probationary, trainee and time-limited employees are eligible for holidays Part-time employees receive holidays on a pro-rata basis.

Temporary, intermittent, part-time (less than half-time), and student employees are not eligible for paid holidays.

 In pay status through the holiday; or
 In pay status for one-half or more of the workdays and holidays in the month when a short leave without pay is involved.

An employee is not eligible for a holiday when:
 The holiday occurs before the beginning date of employment; or
 After the last day of work when an employee separates or goes on extended leave without pay (over half the workdays and holidays in a month).
