Vassar converted four traditional holidays, Lincoln's Birthday, Washington's Birthday, Martin Luther King Day and Veteran's Day, in order to create a long winter break as an energy conservation measure a number of years ago. The winter break holidays are celebrated on a date determined by the College and for 2017/2018 will fall on December 26, 27, 28, 29.

Faculty members may opt to teach on holidays that occur when school is officially in session. Hourly employees who may be required to work on holidays are compensated according to contract requirements or policies and procedures adopted by the College.

This is an anticipated schedule of holiday observances only and may be changed at the discretion of the College. Holidays are assigned as days off unless authorized by a supervisor.

*Administrators may choose to take the Spring Holiday as a Personal Floating Holiday. Personal floating holiday time must be scheduled in advance with the supervisor. The personal floating holiday must be taken by the end of the fiscal year or forfeited.
