If you are in a 100% FTE position, each holiday established by the University is intended to give you eight hours of paid time off.

If you are in less than a 100% FTE position, please refer to HR 88 to learn about how to calculate your holiday time.

New Year's Day--January 1
Memorial Day—May 25
Independence Day—July 4*
Labor Day—September 7
Thanksgiving—November 26

* Friday, July 3 will not be a University holiday; however, classes at University Park and several other campuses will not be held July 3.  University policies provide that if a University holiday falls on an employee's regularly scheduled day off, the employee receives holiday compensatory time to be used at another time. Employees who normally do not work Saturdays will receive holiday compensatory time for the Independence Day holiday.
