Academic Unit Transfer

Content

The primary appointment in an Academic Unit may be transferred to a new primary department. If the person is employed through the College, it would be necessary, upon approval of the request, to complete forms required by Human Resources to change all Payroll and Human Resources records. Normally, the rank and tenure status would remain constant. If there is a change in rank or tenure status, the appropriate procedure for a change or promotion to the new rank and tenure status must be followed.

If there is not a change in rank or tenure status, the following documents are required:

1. Letter of Request for the Academic Unit transfer, initiated and signed by the head of the proposed primary Academic Unit and countersigned by the head of the former primary Academic Unit.

2. Request for Faculty Appointment/Promotion/Other (RFAP) form prepared by the proposed Academic Unit. The "type of action requested" should be indicated as "Other" with a comment indicating the transfer from the former Academic Unit.

3. Executed copy of relevant Faculty Employment Agreement Template
