Vacation and sick leave are accumulated as you work, meaning they will increase every two weeks as you get your paychecks. You do have to have your supervisor's approval before taking leave, however. Depending on your position and time of year, you may be simply told no. Also, if you are on FMLA for any period of time, you can use both annual leave and sick leave to still get paid during this time. However, once you come off FMLA expect to be told you've had enough time off by management and possibly even forced out of the university itself through progressive discipline.
full time, benefitted positions (non senior univ admin) earn up to 3 weeks paid vacation and sick leave per year plus paid university holidays.
able to get vacation and paid time off
Paid time off is generous. At the Administrative and Professional classification, this means nearly 4 weeks annual leave, 2.5 weeks sick leave, typical state holidays, a week paid time off at Christmas and 2 days at Spring Break when the university closes. I have more time off than I have been able to use, and it rolls over (to certain maximums), with payouts upon leaving the university.
Very generous vacation schedule to make up for the lack of pay
