Regular staff members and full time faculty accrue vacation time in hours each month according to the Texas Government Code.
Vacation accrual occurs monthly from the first day of employment and ends on the final day of employment. But vacation with pay may not be granted until a staff member has had six (6) months of continuous employment. Vacation leave is separate from sick leave.
Full-time, benefits eligible employees accrue eight (8) hours per month from their first day of employment and accrue additional time per month as years of service increase. Part-time, benefits eligible employees accrue prorated time based on the number of hours worked each month. Vacation leave must be approved in advance by a supervisor.
