Colorado State University’s holiday schedule for the 2018-2019 fiscal year has been announced, in accordance with the authroity granted by the State Personnel Board to academic institutions to substitute days that coincide with the academic schedule for the 10 legal state holidays.

University offices will be closed and no classes will be held on these dates:

Wednesday, July 4, 2018
Monday, Sept. 3, 2018
Thursday, Nov. 22, 2018
Friday, Nov. 23, 2018

Individual departments whose responsibilities dictate unusual work schedules may establish holiday schedules which deviate from the University’s schedule (see pages 2-12 and 3-19 of the Human Resources Manual).

Hourly employees are not entitled to payment for holidays unless work is actually performed on the day of observance.

Time off for employees to participate in religious services (e.g., Good Friday) should be charged to annual leave or time must be made up by rearrangement of the work schedule within the same workweek. Free time off for religious services is not authorized (Governor’s Executive Order dated Dec. 1, 1972).

Note: The 2001 State Legislature designated March 31 as Cesar Chavez Day. However, this day was not added as a paid state holiday. Employees and departments interested in additional information on Caesar Chavez day should contact Human Resources or review the material under the Benefits Section of the HR website.
