Can an Employer deny a Management Employee prior requested vacation time to take a college course?

Yes. In every state, the employer has the right to schedule vacations for the employers convenience. There is no law that an employer must approve vacation time when the employee requests it, regardless of the purpose.

There is also no law that an employer has to make accommodations for an employee who is attending college, or that management employees must be treated differently from hourly employees with regard to vacation.

The best practice in HR would be for you to accommodate this employee as far as possible without having a negative impact on the business. However, there is no law that requires you to do so. Be aware that if you deny this vacation, the employee may quit.
