Time to Tenure and Promotion

a.    A candidate’s application for tenure and/or promotion is often reviewed during the sixth (6) year of service, except in cases where a candidate is eligible to exercise year (s) of credit granted toward tenure and/or promotion at the initial appointment and specifically stated in the candidate’s offer or letter of appointment. The sixth (6) year period of service for tenure review may also vary when a candidate has been granted an extension for “tolling” (extension of the tenure clock). A Faculty member may also be eligible to apply for early tenure/promotion when the criteria and standards for tenure and/or promotion are met.
