Some offices may require staff to work selected days during Winter Break based on the business needs of the department (e.g., Payroll or University Advancement). Your supervisor will inform you if you are required to work.

* For days when the university is closed for Winter Break that are not paid holidays, classified employees must submit vacation/comp time/personal leave if they want to be paid. This is the only time during the year that classified may take unpaid days off. Unclassified employees must use vacation time for these days.
