Re: Vacation policy for Graduate Student Employees


Fiscal Year Staff

Those graduate students employed on a fiscal year basis may be granted a maximum of 22 working days of vacation at the same rate of pay they normally received: i.e., those employed full time, 22 days at full pay; those employed one half time, 22 days at one half pay, etc. Vacation allowance is accrued from the date of employment, but may not be taken before the completion of six months employment. Vacation is accrued each month as indicated:

Vacation allowance earned in one fiscal year must be taken before the next fiscal year or it is lost.

Graduate student staff terminating their employment with the University may not be paid for any unused vacation allowance, nor may their appointment be extended to cover any unused vacation.

Academic Year Staff

Those members of the graduate student staff employed on an academic year basis are granted vacation during the periods of the academic year when classes are not in session. The seven-calendar day period prior to the first day of classes each semester and the periods between the end of classes and the final date for submitting grade reports are not considered vacation.

The time at which vacation is taken should be mutually agreeable to the graduate student and his supervisor and should take into account the progress of the student toward his degree objective.
