Add A New Position

  • The documentation requirements/procedure for adding a new position varies slightly depending upon the following:
    • The proposed position already exists within the University or will need to be researched and created.
    • The proposed position is Classified or A&P.
  • The position can be posted once HR has completed a job audit.
