Holiday Schedule

Benefit-eligible employees receive the following paid holidays. University offices typically close these days, as well.

Some offices or departments may require some minimal coverage during these periods, particularly during the winter break. Managers are responsible for determining the staffing needs of their area. Individuals who work during the December break will receive regular pay for the time worked and will be allowed time off at regular pay at an agreed upon time. Holidays are subject to change due to COVID-19 and at the discretion of the university.
