Earned Sabbatical

A faculty member participating in the Tenured Faculty Retirement Program who is eligible for earned sabbatical leave may take no more than one semester of leave (maximum) no later than the fall term prior to retiring. Depending on the number of earned sabbatical credits, the faculty member will receive either 100 percent or 75 percent of their base faculty salary during the sabbatical. Faculty who select Option C: Two-Year Phased Retirement may take sabbatical leave only in the first year of the phased retirement.
