Benefits at a Glance

Paid Days Off

The University recognizes the need to be away from your job and, when possible, provides you with compensation for that time through vacation leave, sick leave, and holiday pay.

Vacation Leave

Regular employees working one-half time or more earn vacation leave. Vacation leave is earned on a pro-rated basis, which is determined by an employee's EFT. Regular employees who work one-half time or more, but less than full-time, shall earn and accrue vacation leave in a ratio equivalent to the percentage of hours worked. Vacation leave can be used for vacations and other absences as long as the leave is taken at times mutually acceptable to you and your supervisor. An employee may accrue vacation leave up to 45 days (360 hours). Ten-month contract faculty do not accrue vacation leave. They are allowed 3 personal days per academic year. Any unused personal days do not roll over to the next academic year.
