Work Schedule Change Request

  • The listing below identifies default standard schedules by department/employee group for both the academic year and summer sessions. If a staff member in one of these groups wishes to, or intends to, work a different schedule than the ones below, a Work Schedule Change form must be completed, approved by their supervisor, and submitted to the Office of Payroll Services. Without an approved form, staff will be assigned to the default schedules.
