What does it mean to "accrue" leave?

To accrue means to earn. If you accrue one half a sick day per pay period, you earn one half a sick day per pay period. Some leave types accrue every pay period and other leave types accrue just once a year. You need to consult your unique leave schedule to determine what leave category you are and how you earn. You can view your leave schedule by logging into CougarNet under Employment-Leave Balances, select the Link to Leave Accrual Rates and Apitional Information.
