2,509: Definitions of Academic and University Year for Contractual Purposes

Last Revised: May 1998

For contractual and other appropriate purposes, the university year is defined as the 12-month period coinciding with the fiscal year from July 1 to June 30, inclusive. This period assumes observance of officially recognized national and state holidays and such other recesses from official on-campus and off-campus duties as may be established at any time by the Board of Regents.

Academic faculty under contract for the university year and all administrative faculty are typically issued "A" (12-month) contracts. Academic faculty under contract for the academic year are typically issued "B" contracts. For additional information on faculty contract, refer to section 2,550.

For contractual and other appropriate purposes, the academic year is established annually in conformity with the academic calendar published in the official university catalog, as approved by the president.

"College working days" means any day other than a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, as designated by the Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS), or designated periods of class recess as provided in the university calendar.
