Typically, the Colleges do not completely close for holidays during academic terms. If an office, service, or program must remain open on a holiday, salaried employees who are scheduled to work on a holiday will be entitled to schedule a substitute day off during the same academic year. Scheduling is subject to the supervisor's approval. Such substitute days are not eligible to be carried over from academic year to year or paid upon termination of employment. Certain offices, such as Campus Safety, may have a different holiday schedule or holiday obligations. Employees in these areas will receive information regarding holiday schedules from their supervisors.
