How to Elect University Staff Status

Autumn on the grounds

Beginning August 13, 2012, eligible employees (Classified Staff and A&P Faculty) may elect University Staff status through Benefits@UVa at any time throughout the year. To find out enrollment effective dates, visit the University Staff Enrollment Calendar.

Questions about how the plan works? Visit the links on this page, or view an interactive training session on the University Staff HR Plan.

Those who elect to change to University Staff status will receive a pro-rated amount of University Staff Leave for the remainder of the leave year, based on years of service, and receive their full University Staff Leave allotment at the beginning of the next leave year.
