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.
