Reclassification of a Merit Position to a
Professional and Scientific (P&S) Staff Position
If the duties and responsibilities of a position have significantly changed and the position is more appropriately classified at the P&S level, a request can be initiated to move the position to P&S.
If it is an occupied position, the request is considered a Career Shift and will follow the University guidelines for such a request.
If it is a vacant position, the request will follow the normal process for Reclassifying a Vacant P&S Position.
Please note that all occupied and vacant Merit to P&S classification change requests will be reviewed by the Board of Regents Merit System Office.
