Graduate Studies Calendar 2015-2016 Academic Regulations W. Vacation
W. Vacation

Graduate students are entitled to two weeks of annual vacation. The two weeks of vacation do not include statutory holidays or days designated by the University as closed.

W.1 Vacation Time and Scholarships

Graduate students holding twelve month scholarships are entitled to two weeks of vacation during the twelve month period. The two weeks of vacation do not interrupt the payment of the scholarship.

W.2 Vacation Time and Employment

In keeping with the Alberta Employment Standards Code and the Alberta Employment Standards Regulations, graduate students employed by the university or by a member of the academic staff at the university, are entitled to two weeks of vacation time after twelve months of employment or prior to competing a full twelve months of employment if the employer agrees. In the case of graduate student employees who have already received payment in lieu of vacation (for example, as a graduate assistant/teaching/non-teaching), the time off will be without pay.
