Summer Flexible Schedule Policy


 Ursinus has a summer hours program designed to provide you with some well-deserved extra time off, and more time for your well-being and re-invigoration.

Half-day Fridays will begin on May 17, 2024, and will continue through July 26, 2024. All offices will close at 12:30 p.m. each Friday during that time with just two exceptions:

—Friday, May 31 (the college is closed for Memorial Day on Monday, May 27)

—Friday, June 21 (the college is closed for Juneteenth on Wednesday, June 19)

We will return to normal business hours on Fridays beginning the week of Monday, July 29.

Additionally, the college will be closed from Monday, July 1, through Friday, July 5, giving all employees a “summer break”—an entire week off during the Fourth of July holiday.

We recognize that some offices may need to remain open on Friday afternoons with minimal staffing for the duration of normal operating hours. In the event a department must remain open, alternative flextime may be arranged with supervisor approval.

Our remote work policy will remain in place in its current 3/2 format during this timeframe, which means all employees are expected to be in the office three days per week in accordance with your department’s remote work policy agreement. Half-day Fridays cannot be added to your remote work agreement as an additional work from home day.

Furthermore, employees who use paid time off (vacation, sick time, or wellness days) on a Friday during this timeframe must take full days (a half-day Friday will not count as a half day of sick or vacation time).

And finally, employees must report to work to be eligible for summer hours. Overtime cannot be accrued with the summer hours program, and part-time employees and certain grant-funded positions are not eligible for the program. For more information, visit the human resources website at
