Vacation Time
On June 1, 2020, Ithaca College moved to an accrual-based vacation time model. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the maximum vacation balance for FY 20/21 was increased by the equivalent of 10 days’ worth of accrued time (pro-rated based on percentage of full time). This change is only in effect for FY 20/21. Beginning July 1, 2021, the maximum amount of vacation time you are allowed to accrue will revert back to 1.5 times your annual amount.
