Eligibility Requirement for Sabbatical and Difference-in-Pay


Eligibility

Probationary and Tenured Faculty, Full-Time Lecturers, Full-Time Librarians and Full-Time Academic-Related Counselors (SSP-AR) may be eligible for Sabbatical/DIP leave. Faculty must have full-time continuous service for 6 years total prior to taking their first sabbatical or DIP leave. Thereafter, faculty must have full-time continuous service for 3 years prior to taking a DIP leave or 6 years prior to taking a sabbatical leave.

 2008-09 Active full-time 1st year
 2009-10 Active full-time 2nd year
 2010-11 Active full-time 3rd year
 2011-12 Active full-time 4th year
 2012-13 Active full-time 5th year 
 2013-14 Active full-time 6th year – can apply during this year
for leave in following year
 2014-15 Active full-time or on leave Eligible for leave
Academic Year Status Service toward Leave Eligibility

Partial years of active service count toward leave eligibility. Therefore, faculty taking a Fall leave would not begin to accrue credit for service until their return in Spring of the same academic year.

Once eligibility is achieved, faculty maintain status until a Sabbatical or Difference in Pay leave is taken. Subsequent leave eligibility is calculated based on the date faculty return from such a leave. Note: A leave must be awarded and taken in order for the eligibility count to be reset.
