The following dates have been designated as University holidays.  Kettering will be closed for business on these dates.  All regular full-time faculty and staff* receive holiday time off work with pay.  All regular part-time faculty and staff will be paid four hours for each holiday.

To use a floating holiday:

  • Utilize your department’s time off request procedure, providing as much notice as possible;

  • Use the holiday in a minimum of four-hour increments;
  • The floating holiday must be used within the academic year provided. Unused floating holidays will not carry-over to the next academic year.
