Probationary period

The probationary period offers the manager an opportunity to monitor and evaluate your suitability for the job. Also, it is an important time for you to decide if the position meets your needs.

All newly hired, or rehired, classified employees must serve 12-month probationary periods. Classified employees who transfer from other positions in the state system and who already have completed an initial 12 months of classified employment do not serve new probationary periods. Classified employees (for example, campus police officers or campus police dispatchers) who applied for positions that require satisfactory completion of mandated training programs with certifications must serve new probationary periods. These employees are notified of this requirement during the hiring process.
