My Profile: Paid Time Off (PTO)
How to request time off, view and manage your PTO balance. Managers are able to track and approve their team’s time off.
Taking time off is critical and managing it shouldn’t be a hassle. At Adelphi University, all eligible employees can use the My Profile tool found within eCampus to request time off, view both your time taken and accrued.

Employee PTO Guide
This tool provides immediate confirmation of requests, ease of cancelation/edits of submitted requests, and offers remaining balances and accrual information for all types of PTO.
If you work weekends, you can activate the slider, which will allow the calendar to include weekend dates.
Input your start and end dates, then specify if it is a full or partial day off, then choose the type of time off. You can also choose “Add More Dates” to include additional days with a different type of time off within the same submission.
Once successfully submitted, you will receive an email confirmation. Your manager will also be notified by email to review and approve your request.
Please note that your manager is not required to approve for Bereavement, Jury Duty or COVID vaccine leave. These are automatically approved.

Dates with a green checkmark are dates in the past and have been confirmed by you as taken. Dates that have a grey hour-glass icon are either pending manager approval or employee confirmation.
Your remaining days for each type of leave are indicated in bold to assist with your planning.
If you submitted a day off that has not yet passed, you can quickly and easily delete or edit those dates – even if your manager has already approved.
Simply select the “View/Edit” button under the type of PTO, and a new window will show all the scheduled days off for that type. From here you can easily delete scheduled time off, or even edit the date and type. Select the SAVE button in the upper-right of the screen.
Any edits will automatically email your manager for review and approval.

You will also receive additional prompts alerting you to confirm your dates taken. Select the blue “View/Confirm” button to see all the dates that need your confirmation.
From here, you can specify whether the day off is correct, or if you were working that day, you can mark it as incorrect with a reason.
Select the SAVE button in the upper-right of the screen to submit your confirmations and automatically alert your manager of incorrect dates.

When new requests come through, both you and your delegate will receive emails to review and approve.
When your direct reports submit PTO requests, these will be listed within the Manager’s tab and you will notice a red alert dot on the tab and menu.
If you must deny a request, you are able to provide a reason.
Once you have submitted your confirmations, email notifications will be sent to your employees alerting them of your selections and notes.
