Human Resources: Holiday Schedule

The University System of Georgia (USG) allows 12 holidays per year that are recognized and taken off with pay. Some holidays are standardized and others are at the discretion of the institution. The holidays approved by the institution for calendar year 2016 are as follows:
 

2016 Holidays Dates Observed Day
New Year's Day January 1 Friday
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day January 18 Monday
Independence Day July 4 Monday
Labor Day September 5 Monday
Thanksgiving Holiday November 24 - 25 Thursday - Friday
Christmas Holiday December 23 - 30 Friday - Friday


In addition, the University will be closed on Memorial Day (May 30th). Since this additional holiday is over and above the 12 allotted by the USG, staff and administration have the following options:

Since there will be no classes on Memorial Day, this does not apply to 10-month faculty as this holiday has been factored into their summer contract.

The University administration recognizes the importance of the Memorial Day holiday; we encourage you to use this time to recognize the supreme sacrifice that has been made by members of the armed forces on our behalf.
