Vacation Leave

During the full-time employee’s first calendar year of employment with Campbell University, paid vacation is earned at a rate of 6.67 hours per month of service after the employee has completed the sixty (60) day probationary period. NO paid vacation time may be taken during the employee’s introductory period. All full-time employees (working a minimum of 32 hours per week) with 10 years, but less than 15 years of service will earn vacation at a rate of one (1) day per month. Employees with 15 or more years of service will receive vacation at the rate of 1.25 days per month.

One week of each employee’s earned vacation must be taken at one time. The supervisor must approve all vacations. Employees may accumulate up to five (5) days of vacation. Each December 31, all accumulated vacation over five (5) days will be lost.

Employees who terminate with proper notice (as defined in the Employee Personnel Manual), will be paid for any vacation earned but not taken.

If a holiday observed by the University falls within an employee’s vacation period, the holiday will not be counted as vacation time.

Vacation may be taken in no less than one-half day increments.

Sick and Bereavement Leave

It is the policy of Campbell University to provide permanent, full-time, non-faculty employees with protection against loss of earnings due to illness by providing a reasonable amount of sick leave.

Sick leave is earned at a rate of one (1) day per month beginning with the first full month of active employment following the completion of the employee’s introductory period. Each employee may accumulate up to a maximum of 120 days of paid sick leave that can be used at any time during the employee’s continued employment with the University.

Sick leave may be used to cover absences for actual periods of illness or a genuine medical emergency in the immediate family.

Reasonable sick leave may be taken in the event of the death of the following relatives: spouse, children, parents, brother or sister, grandparents, mother-in-law or father-in-law, brother-in-law or sister-in-law.

Upon separation of employment for any reason, all unused sick leave is forfeited.

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.

1. University Undergraduate Tuition Benefits:

Full tuition assistance is available to eligible employees who attend any of the University’s Campuses, to include campuses and programs offered through Adult and Online Education, provided that attendance is not during the employee’s normal work hours as described in the Conditions set forth below.

Full tuition assistance is available to eligible spouses and dependents who attend in a full-time status at any of the University’s Campuses, to include campuses and programs offered through Adult and Online Education. Tuition assistance is also available to eligible spouses and dependents who attend in a less than full-time status in a degree seeking capacity.

Tuition assistance, as defined above, is available to eligible employees, spouses, and dependents for Study Abroad programs that are tuition bearing programs taught by University faculty. The benefit applies to tuition only; all other costs are the sole responsibility of the parent/student.

The term “tuition assistance” means the university will pay for the tuition cost after all possible financial aid, excluding loans, is applied to tuition. Tuition assistance applies to all semesters (fall, spring, and summer sessions). General fees, room and board, and other special fees are not covered under this benefit.

1.1 Conditions for undergraduate study:

Eligible employees must first apply for admission to the University campus they desire to attend either part time or full time. Application for tuition benefits must be completed prior to attendance. Employees may be obtained at the University Human Resource office.

Eligible employees, spouses, and dependents planning to attend full time must apply for all state and federal financial aid (excluding loans) which will be applied to the cost of the tuition before the University benefits apply.

Eligible employees may enroll in a single course taken in place of their lunch hour on any given day upon approval by their supervisor. Otherwise, eligible employees may not attend classes during their normal working hours.

2. University Graduate and Professional Degree Tuition Benefits:

One half of tuition assistance is available to eligible employees, spouses, and dependents for all graduate and professional degree programs offered through

Campbell University for part-time or full-time attendance, as long as it is not during normal working hours, subject to the following conditions:

2.1 Conditions for Graduate and Professional Degree study:

The eligible student must be accepted by the applicable graduate or professional school.

The tuition assistance benefit does not cover the cost of graduate or professional school admission test fees (e.g., GMAT, GRE, and MAT) or any special fees.

The dependent and employee must contact the Assistant Vice President for Admissions in the summer prior to the dependent’s senior year in high school for the process and list of participating schools.
