Re: Summary of Policies and Regulations Relating to Faculty, Administrative, and Professional Staff Vacations


Vacation is granted by Purdue University to its staff members for the purpose of releasing them temporarily from their day-to-day duties and responsibilities. Time thus spent in rest and relaxation benefits both the University and the individual, and the accrual of vacation for other purpose is strongly discouraged.

  1. Academic-Year Staff

    Members of the faculty and administrative and professional staff employed on an academic year basis are in vacation status during the periods of the academic year when classes are not in session, except for the seven calendar day period prior to the first day of classes each semester and the period between the end of classes and the final date for submitting grade reports.

  2. Fiscal Year Staff

    1. Fiscal year staff classified as faculty are granted a maximum vacation allowance of twenty-two (22) working days during each year of service.

    2. Fiscal year staff classified as administrative or professional are granted vacation as follows:
      1. Staff classified as management or professional are granted a maximum vacation allowance of twenty-two (22) working days during each year of service.

      2. Staff classified as administrative and supervisory and professional assistant are granted a vacation allowance of fifteen (15) working days during the first year of service; and twenty-two (22) working days during the second year of service, and thereafter.

      3. Staff classified as operations assistant or technical assistant are granted a vacation allowance of twelve (12) working days during the first three years of continuous service; fifteen (15) working days during the fourth and fifth years of continuous service; and twenty-two (22) working days during the sixth year of continuous service, and thereafter.

    3. Vacation credits accrue on a monthly basis up to a maximum of forty-four (44) working days. Vacation credits accrued in excess of 44 working days are forfeited.

    4. Although vacation allowance for fiscal the date of appointment, it may not be taken before the completion of three months' service.

    5. At the time of termination, a fiscal year staff member terminating without prejudice and within the terms of the employment agreement may be paid a maximum of twenty-two (22) working days of accrued vacation.

    6. At time of retirement (in accordance with the definition of a retired staff member contained in Executive Memorandum No. B-35) or death, accrued vacation for a fiscal year staff member will be paid to a maximum of forty-four (44) working days.

    7. Accrued vacation available at termination, retirement, or death will be paid in a lump sum and included in the employee's normal final paycheck.

    8. Scheduling of vacation must be mutually agreeable to the staff member and to the University. Only the approval of the head of the department is needed.
