Human Resources

Work schedule

Scheduled work hours vary among departments. The most common full-time schedule is 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week. Most regular work schedules continue throughout the year, but some are partial year (for example, nine or ten-month) work schedules.

The most common office hours of the University work day are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. However, each department determines the hours of work for its employees as necessary to staff its operations. Departments and supervisors set and adjust individual employee schedules to meet the department’s operational needs.

All staff and management employees should have a Work Schedule Form on file with Human Resources.

Faculty should consult the Academic Calendar.
