IP 1.18 Faculty Status
Provisional Faculty: Fulltime faculty serve in a provisional status period from the date of employment until the completion of employment under three consecutive full year regular contracts. The provisional period may be extended for one additional year, but not to exceed four years, if the college president determines that additional time should be allowed.
Removal from Provisional Status: A provisional employee shall be non-renewed at the end of the provisional period unless the College President approves removal from provisional status. Department chairs make their recommendation to the President via the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
Non-Provisional Faculty: Full-time faculty who have completed their three (or four) years of provisional service and have been recommended and approved to move to Non-Provisional Status.
