Carnegie Mellon University

Time Away from Work

Carnegie Mellon respects the balance you seek to achieve between your professional and private lives. From taking care of yourself or a child with a minor illness to coping with a disabling condition, you may have a variety of reasons for needing to be away from work.

The university provides several types of benefits to accommodate your needs to take time off. The eligibility requirements and compensation/benefits for each type of leave differ. In all cases, you should notify your manager and seek approval for time away from the office with as much advance notice as possible.
