In most areas, suspensions can take effect in two days or less from the date you make the request. If you prefer, you can donate your vacation copies to students, through our Newspaper in Education program. You will be billed as usual for the period. To donate your vacation copies, proceed to "Vacation Holds" and choose the NIE donation option.
