 As previously communicated, Ithaca College will implement a change to the current Paid Time Away (PTA) Policy beginning June 1, 2020. Until the new policy goes into effect on June 1, 2020, all new benefit-eligible staff will continue to have vacation, sick, and personal leave PTA front-loaded in accordance with current policy.

Beginning June 1, 2020, all benefit-eligible staff will begin to accrue vacation and sick PTA on a per pay period basis. The accrual amount will be an employee’s annual amount (in accordance with current policy) divided by the annual number of pay periods.  The maximum amounts remain the same as with current policy.  Personal leave will continue to be front loaded on a fiscal year basis as it is now.

Due to the change in the beginning of the fiscal year to July 1, employees will be front loaded with the regular 3 personal days and an additional 1 month worth of personal leave (one-twelfth of 3 days) equal to 3.25 days. This amount will be prorated for employees working less than full-time.  Beginning July 1, 2021, the annual personal leave allowance employees will be front loaded will revert to 3 days since it will then again be covering a 12-month period. 

All other policies and procedures concerning the College’s Paid Time Away program will continue. Please refer to the FAQ found here for more information.

Please contact the Office of Human Resources at or 607.274.8000 if you have any questions.
