Vacation & Sick Time

Vacation and sick leave hours are accrued based on the status and duration of employment with Georgia State University.

Administrative Faculty: Twelve-month contract faculty accrue 14 hours vacation per month from the employment date at Georgia State University through the duration of the employment period. Sick leave is accrued at the rate of 8 hours per calendar month.

Academic Faculty: Ten-month contract faculty do not accrue vacation hours. Sick leave is accrued at the rate of 8 hours per calendar month.  For Summer employment, sick leave will be prorated accordingly.

Staff 100% FTE: Regular, full time employees accrue 10 hours vacation per month for the first five years of employment. After the completion of the 5th year of service, vacation will accrue at 12 hours per month, and after the completion of the 10th year of service, vacation will accrue at 14 hours per month. Sick leave is accrued at the rate of 8 hours per calendar month.

Employees working at least one-half time but less than full time earn and accrue vacation and sick time in an equivalent ratio to their percentage of time employed. Temporary employees, including student assistants, graduate assistants, part-time instructors, and regular employees who work less than one-half time do not earn or accrue vacation time or sick leave credit.

Accrued vacation and sick time is available on your check stub.
