If a holiday lands on a Sunday, then it will be observed on the following Monday. The University would be closed on that Monday.

When to use your leave by:

  • Vacation Carryover (VC) - use by December 31st of the current year or it will be lost.
  • Current Year's Vacation (VN) -  use by December 31st of the following year or it will be lost.
  • Personal Holiday (PH) - use by December 31st of the current year or it will be lost
