Tenure-track faculty members who determine that certain personal circumstances may impede progress toward consideration for the award of tenure may apply for an extension of their probationary period. Extensions are for one academic year.  In certain circumstances and in accordance with policy, a second year’s extension may be granted. See the HOP 2-2020's Extension of the Probationary Period for more information.

Personal circumstances may include but are not limited to:

  1. Childbirth or adoption
  2. Disability or illness of the faculty member
  3. Status of faculty member as caregiver of a family member who is a preschool child, a disabled person, or an elderly person.
