Personal Leave

The University provides one personal day per year to be taken any time during the calendar year, with prior supervisory approval. Employees may utilize their personal day during holidays not officially observed by the University. 

There may be years in which, based on the winter break calendar, one additional personal day may be granted. This will vary according to the day of the week of the traditional holidays.


Staff members must be employed by the first work day of the calendar year in order to be eligible for personal leave for that calendar year.
