  • Employed in their current position for at least six months
  • Received satisfactory or better performance ratings on their most recent performance reviews
  • Meet the minimum criteria for the new position

The following best practices are recommended for employees who are considering applying for a transfer or promotion:

  • Confirm their eligibility for transfer or promotion prior to applying for the new position
  • Notify their current supervisor when applying or interviewing for other positions at the University
  • Provide a two-week notice to their current supervisor so an appropriate exit/transfer strategy can be developed
