What to Know For the End of the Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Fall quarter is a wrap. The campus is quiet for winter break. And many staff are planning their getaway.

For most, however, there are still projects to finalize, work to finish and tasks to complete by the end of the year.

To help simplify the task list, and to make sure no one misses a deadline, we’ve put together a list of things to do before you leave.

Time off

Let’s start with the important stuff. If you still have your Personal Holiday, it must be used by Dec. 31, 2021. Personal holidays do not roll over to the next calendar year for use.

Starting Friday, Dec. 24, the Corporation office, Building 15, will be closed and will reopen on Jan. 3. Following the university holiday schedule, all benefited CPC employees have this week off covered by floating holidays.


If you want to take advantage of your CPC Holiday Gift Certificate and load up on some products and produce from Cal Poly Meats before the start of the New Year, now is the time. The shop is open this Thursday and Friday from noon-5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. after which they will close for the holidays. Worry not, the gift certificate is good until May 31, so you have some time.

For the CPC colleagues who are on campus until Dec. 23, select Campus Dining venues, like Brunch and Market Grand Ave, including the deli and Jamba, at Vista Grande will still be open. Starbucks UU will also be serving. All venues will be closed Dec. 24-Jan 1. Winter break hours can be found at

Electronic W2s and 1095s

CPC employees can opt-in for electronic delivery of 2021 W2’s and 1095’s tax forms through Doculivery. Staff can access the Doculivery website via the CPC Paycheck section on the Cal Poly Portal or through the search bar on For help logging into Doculivery for the first time, email [email protected] to obtain instructions on user ID and a temporary password. To receive 2021 W2 and 1095 electronically staff must opt-in by 10 a.m. on Jan 10, 2022. Staff who do not opt-in will receive their W2 via mail and post marked no later than Jan. 30, 2022.
