Departmental Policy for Vacation Time (Annual Leave)
The department abides by the policy for annual leave for graduate assistants formulated by the Associate Dean for Research of the College of Veterinary Medicine. Graduate assistants accrue leave at the rate of 6.67 hours per month, i.e., 10 days per year. Leave forms should be submitted to the departmental secretary with the signature of your major professor prior to taking leave. Leave may not be taken until accrued.
Effective each January 1, any leave remaining from the preceding fiscal year ending June 30 will be deleted. Graduate assistants may take University holidays if it does not interfere with their program responsibilities.
