Holidays

Employees who are appointed to work at least 20 hours per week for a period of at least 4 ½ continuous months are eligible for holidays. Faculty must be appointed for at least 50% time for at least 4 ½ continuous months to be eligible, and students employed in positions that require student status as a condition of employment are not eligible for holidays.

UTD Holiday Policy

The Texas Legislature sets the number of holidays each year, and allows universities the flexibility to set a holiday schedule compatible with the academic calendar. In years when the Legislature meets, the subsequent year’s holiday schedule is usually available by early July. In non-legislative years, the subsequent year’s holiday schedule is usually available by early May.
