Evaluations - Tenure Track

Normally, a probationary faculty member is given a two-year initial appointment. Probationary faculty are subject to reviews before they are re-appointed to third, fourth, fifth or sixth probationary years or granted tenure. Appointment to probationary status implies that a faculty member will eventually be granted tenure if his or her performance meets the standards in Section II UPS 210.000PDF FileOpens in new window (current version approved July 15, 2015) and of his or her approved Departmental Personnel StandardsOpens in new window. Tenure-track faculty are considered probationary faculty until they are awarded tenure or terminated.

Faculty also have the option to submit their files in an electronic format.  Electronic retention, tenure and promotion (ERTP) participation must be approved prior to file submission.  Please contact Rita Page at rpage@fullerton.edu or visit the ERTP page for more information.

The RTP timeline is established by the Office of the Provost, on behalf of the President.
