AP Search Waiver Guidelines

  • Search waivers may be granted for the following reasons: in-line promotions (title and salary), reassignment/transfer, title change, reorganization of the unit, spousal hire, FTE changes, and other special circumstances.
  • Visiting appointments that were filled through an open and competitive search may be waived into a permanent position with the approval of UEO. If at the time a visiting position is advertised, the department has reason to believe the position will become permanent, it should say so in the job postings. Visiting appointments that were filled without an open and competitive search (through an approved search waiver) must be renewed yearly for a maximum of four years.
  • The department must provide justification for making the position a visiting appointment (grant funded, short-term project, etc.)
  • Academic Hourly appointments may not be waived into a permanent academic professional position. (Department must conduct at least a local search).
