2022 Summer Hours Program and Time Reporting Rules

​​​​​The Summer Hours Program allows full-time staff employees early Friday departures during the summer. For employees whose schedules can not accommodate early departures, three additional summer floating holidays can be substituted. ​

For complete program details, please refer to the university's Paid Holida​ys and Absences​ policy


The 2022 Summer Hours Program is effective from Friday, June 17, through Friday, September 2. (For the College of Law, the Summer Hours period will extend from Friday, May 27, through Friday, August 19, due to the college's semester schedule.) ​

Your manager will discuss with you the best schedule for Summer Hours in order to maintain adequate coverage in your department or area. Regardless of the Summer Hours method you are using—3 P.M. Early Friday Departures or Three Additional Summer Floating Holidays*—your time away from work due to this program must be recorded in BlueSky. 

Non-exempt and exempt employees should enter Summer Hours instead of Regular Hours to record time off due to the Summer Hours Program:  
Summer Hours – for 3 P.M. Early Friday Departures
Summer Days – for Summer Floating Holidays*​  

For complete program details, please refer to the university's Paid Holida​ys and Absences​ policy

*Please Note: If you are using Three Additional Summer Floating Holidays and your normally scheduled work day is 7 hours, you may record a maximum of 21 hours for Summer Floating Holidays.
