Official College Holidays for Fiscal Year 2021–2022
Employees may choose three (3) additional days as paid holidays. These days may be either federal, state, religious or any other day(s) the employee may choose to be approved by the academic chair or department head. Because of varied religious practices of Mount Holyoke College’s employees, academic chairs and department heads are encouraged to approve employee requests for time off for the observance of the religious holidays or practices.
Some offices or departments may have to remain open on some or all holidays. Staffing on those occasions may be reduced. Any non-union employee required to work on such a holiday will be given another day off with pay in lieu of that holiday, such days subject to the approval of the academic chair or department head. Union employees will be compensated according to the terms of their particular contract.
Students can view all holidays impacting their schedule by visiting the academic calendar. Note, non-essential personal may be unavailable on the days listed above.
