Student E-mail Is Moving to Cardinal Mail
The university is moving e-mail service for students from the current CUA Web mail environment to Cardinal Mail, CUA's implementation of Google Apps Education Edition. As part of this move, student e-mail addresses will change from username@cua.edu to username@cardinalmail.cua.edu. The transition of student e-mail to Cardinal Mail is taking place in three phases. The second phase began on the revised date of Wednesday, June 3. At that time, students’ Cardinal Station “Campus” e-mail address became @cardinalmail.cua.edu and e-mail is delivered to their Cardinal Mail account. Please note that until the final phase of the transition in late September 2009, messages sent to the @cua.edu address for existing students will delivered.

For more information about this transition and its effect on university employees who communicate with students via e-mail, please visit http://computing.cua.edu/cardinalmail/transition-staff.cfm.

Notice to Exempt Employees Regarding Change to Vacation Policy
The Office of Human Resources reminds employees that the revised vacation policy allows exempt employees to carry over up to a maximum of 21 days into the next fiscal year. All carry-over vacation days in excess of seven must be used by Aug. 15 within the new vacation year. Any days remaining in excess of the seven allowable carry-over days will be forfeited as of Aug. 15 and not carried forward.

Because of this change, beginning in September, the “Start Balance” of vacation hours shown on paystubs will include all hours that were accrued between May 1, 2009, and Aug. 31, 2009, plus up to the seven days of allowable carry-over. At this same time, the “Earned Year To Date” will include hours that are accrued Sept. 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010. Note that the “End Balance” will continue to reflect available leave. For more information, contact the human resources office at 202-319-5050.
