Holiday Calendar

Calendar Year 2018 Holiday Schedule

According to the Board of Regents policy, each institution within the University System of Georgia is
allowed twelve (12) paid holidays each calendar year for employees at the institution. After receiving
input from throughout the campus and consulting the academic calendar, the President’s Cabinet along
with the Staff Council has adopted the following Calendar Year 2018 Official Holiday Schedule for
Georgia Southern.

New Year’s Day Monday January 1st
MLK Day Monday January 15th
Memorial Day  Monday May 28th
Independence Day  Wednesday July 4th
Labor Day  Monday Sept. 3rd
Thanksgiving Holidays  Thursday Nov. 22 – Friday Nov. 23rd
December Holidays  Monday Dec. 24th – Friday Dec. 28th

Note: The University will close for the Christmas Holidays from Monday, December 24, 2018 through
Tuesday, January 1, 2019. This would allow the University to be closed for 11 consecutive days.
However, this will require everyone to use one day of annual leave, comp time or leave without pay for
December 31, 2018. Employees with available comp time or annual leave must use this time rather than
elect leave without pay. Employees should not place annual leave on their timecards for this day. Leave
will be entered for all employees by the Payroll Department.
