Most College employees' regular schedules are 35 or 40 hours per week.
Full-time employees work a minimum of 32 hours per week and are eligible for full employer contributions for health and dental insurance. Other benefits such as Grant-In-Aid and Educational Assistance are prorated based on the scheduled hours worked compared to a full-time schedule in that position, for example 35 or 40 hours. Compensation-related benefits are based on the eligible compensation received as defined by the respective benefit plan. Academic year employees work a minimum of nine months and accrue paid leave on a prorated basis.
Employees who work a regular part-time schedule of at least 20 hours but less than 32 hours in a work week are entitled to most benefits on a prorated basis.
Employees working less than 20 hours a week or less than 39 weeks a year, or who hold casual positions, are not eligible for benefits.
