Description of Closure

University offices will be officially closed on these holidays except where continuous operations must be sustained to avoid conflicts with patient care, teaching schedules, and service-related functions. This schedule may be altered for 24/7 service and some clinics. Please check with your department. The Tulsa campus may publish its own holiday calendar.

Employees who are required to work on published holidays will be provided alternative time to be taken on a date to be scheduled between supervisors and affected employees.

Eligibility for Paid Holidays

To be eligible for these paid holidays, employees must be appointed on a continuous basis for .50 FTE or more and be in paid status (at work or on approved paid time off) on the day preceding or the day following the holiday. Holiday pay is pro-rated based on actual FTE.

Students and other temporary employees are not eligible for paid holidays. 

Health Sciences Center offices will be officially closed on the published holidays, except where continuous operations must be sustained to avoid conflicts with patient care, teaching schedules, and service related functions.  Employees on all campuses who are required to work on the published holiday will be provided alternative time to be taken on dates to be scheduled between the supervisor and affected employee.
