Paydays and holidays

VCU observes a semi-monthly payday for all employees. Payday falls on the 1st for the previous 10th-24th pay period. Payday falls on the 16th for previous 25th-9th pay period. If a payday falls on a weekend or Monday holiday, payday will be the preceding Friday (except for the new July 1 fiscal year or when a state-mandated and end-of-quarter payday falls on another day). 

Current and future paydays and holidays

Plan ahead and mark these dates on your calendar for when the university closes to observe holidays. 12-month faculty, classified staff and university and academic professionals observe the holiday schedule below. Nine-month faculty observe the same holidays as students; they do not accrue holiday time. VCU’s holiday schedule includes any additional holiday time granted by the Governor.
