Sick Leave

The University provides paid sick leave to full-time, non-faculty employees to help protect against loss of earnings due to illness or injury. Sick leave is not intended to be used as a substitute for vacation days. Sick leave may be used to cover absences for actual periods of illness, medical, vision, or dental visits or medical emergencies in the immediate family. For the purposes of this policy, immediate family is considered spouse, children, parents, grandparents, siblings or other dependents living in the employee’s household. Sick leave is earned at the rate of one day per month beginning with the first full month of active employment. Sick leave cannot be used during an employee’s probationary period. There is no limit to the amount of sick leave an employee can accrue.

Please refer to the Sick Leave section of the Personnel Manual located at: https://www.campbell.edu/faculty-staff/human-resources/personnel-manual/ for full details on use of sick leave.

Additionally, employees may take up to three (3) days of paid bereavement leave upon the death of an extended family member. “Extended family members” are defined as an employee’s spouse’s parent, spouse’s stepparent, or spouse’s sibling.

Tuition Assistance Policy

Campbell University offers a range of tuition benefits to its full-time employees and their spouses and dependents for undergraduate, graduate studies, and Professional Programs, in addition to some educational opportunities outside the University. Full-time employees are eligible for tuition benefits the following term after completion of the probationary employment period.

A dependent child of an eligible full-time employee is eligible for tuition assistance if the employee is able to claim the child as a dependent on his/her federal income tax.

Eligible employees and dependents attending the University and using tuition benefits must maintain Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress as specified by the University. After two semesters, students using University Faculty Staff Tuition Assistance benefits who fail to maintain the specified minimum requirements will become ineligible for continued tuition assistance benefits. However, students may continue to attend at their own expense, and upon attainment of Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress in accordance with University policy may reapply for resumption of tuition assistance benefits.
