College Policies I Bereavement Leave


In the event of a death in one’s immediate family (spouse, parent, parent-in-law, child, son- or daughter-in-law, sister, brother, grandparent, grandchild or any other relative living in the employee’s household), a regular full-time employee is entitled to three consecutive days of leave with pay. Bereavement time may be extended with the approval of the supervisor by using vacation leave, personal leave or leave without pay.
