Vacation Rollover due to COVID-19 (2022)

Through the pandemic, in recognition of the difficulty in scheduling time off, we have permitted some vacation rollover. Now, as we phase out of emergency mode and into our New Normal, we expect to return to a normal vacation policy. However, in this transition period, you may roll over up to three accrued, unused vacation days from this fiscal year into the next one (July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023). Those days will be added to your annual allotment and must be used by June 30, 2023. If you leave the University during the next fiscal year, the rollover days will not be paid out.
