Wellness Program Participation Guidelines

The purpose of the college’s Wellness Leave is to provide incentive and time to participate in wellness programs.  Full-time faculty and staff may participate in any of the college’s sports or exercise programs and receive matched time for their exercise efforts.  For every 30 minutes of exercise by a faculty/staff employee, the college will match 30 minutes of free exercise time, within the following limits:

  1. College-contributed time and employee-contributed time must be taken on the same day.
  2. Incentive time is limited to 30 minutes, up to three times weekly (one and one-half hours weekly maximum for college's contribution).
  3. Participants must check in and out at the campus fitness center desk.
  4. College-contributed time should be discussed with and approved by supervisor, in advance. Wellness leave contributed by the college must be recorded in TCP for non-exempt employees.
  5. Fitness programs must be performed on Collin College campuses.
