What is a special holiday?

It is an additional holiday designated for one-time observance by the governor after the schedule for the state’s 11 paid holidays has been determined. These designations are often announced by the governor within a few weeks of the extra day(s). When this occurs, the University will determine how to observe the holiday to best meet MSU Denver’s needs. 

Are all employees eligible to take state holidays?

Paid state holidays apply to the following employee classes: 

  • Classified staff 
  • Professional staff 
  • Faculty
