Summer hours program for full-time staff

Summer hours program

As shared previously via email, DePaul's Summer Hours Program for full-time staff begins on Friday, June 18 and runs through Friday, Sept. 3. For the College of Law, the Summer Hours period will extend from Friday, May 28, through Friday, Aug. 20, due to the college's semester schedule.

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

Plan ahead with your manager to determine which Summer Hours method you will follow:

  • Method I - Early Friday Departure: Each Friday during the summer, eligible employees will be allowed to end their workday at 3 p.m. and receive pay for the period of time not worked.
  • Method II - Summer Floating Holidays: Employees whose work requirements do not permit a regular 3 p.m. Friday departure may instead be granted three Summer Floating Holidays. These must be taken in whole day increments. No other variation is allowed.
Either Method I or Method II must be selected by each manager for each eligible employee in their area prior to the Summer Hours start date each year. Each employee may only be under one method for the duration of the summer; switching between methods is not permitted.

Visit the Office of Human Resources website for program guidelines and time reporting rules. Note: You will be able to save your Summer Hours/Days in advance of the Summer Hours Period by adding an absence in BlueSky, but will not be able to submit them to your manager for approval until the Summer Hours Period has begun.
