Personal Leave


Overview
 
A Personal leave of absence is an unpaid leave for a period of 30 calendar days. You must submit a written request for a Personal Leave in writing and obtain written approval from your Dean, Director or Department Head.
 
The request must include both, the effective and ending dates, not to exceed 30 days.
 
When approval is granted, the request must be forwarded to the Office of Human Resources, Leave Coordinator for processing.
 

If you go on Personal leave, the department may post your position. In other words, you are not guaranteed a position upon the end of your Personal leave.

While on a Personal leave of absence, you may continue participating in the University’s various insurance programs by paying the full amount of the applicable premiums, including the amount normally paid by the University.

If you are unable to work beyond the 30 days of absence, you must request an extension of Personal leave from your Dean, Director or Department Head in writing.

The request for extension of a Personal leave may not exceed 30 days. If the leave extension is approved by the Dean, Director or Department Head, it must also be forwarded to the Office of Human Resources, Leave Coordinator for processing.
