Internal Applicants

University employees who wish to transfer between positions within the university should follow the hiring procedures for the human resources office responsible for the position vacancy. A new application for employment, references and additional background checks may be required. For internal applicants, the time spent interviewing will be counted as work time.

Internal Hires/Transfers

An internal hire or transfer occurs when a current employee assumes the duties of a vacant position at any location within the university. When an employee transfers from a position in one human resources office area to another, the employee’s official personnel file should be made available and will be forwarded to the receiving human resources office.
