2.7 CHANGES IN EMPLOYMENT STATUS

The University encourages employees to advance in status and position in keeping with their qualifications and experience as position vacancies occur.  Unit administrators who must fill vacant (new or existing) positions may first consider all qualified regular employees within their own department and the University community before considering applicants externally.
 
Regular full-time employees must complete six (6) months in the current position before seeking a promotion or transfer.  Exceptions may be granted by the current manager or the Executive Director of Human Resources or a designee when unusual staff solutions are needed. 
 
Part-time employees may seek a promotion or transfer to any regular full-time position at any time.
 
Temporary employees may be considered for placement into a regular position at any time; however, they may not be converted to regular full-time or part-time employment status without the completion of recruitment efforts in compliance with University policies.
