|Converting a Pre-tenure-track Special Category Appointment Upon Completion of PhD||
Any time spent in a pre-tenure-track Assistant Professor (Special Category) position prior to conversion to a tenure-track Assistant Professor position is excluded from years of service calculations for the tenure-track reappointment process and the tenure cohort clock.

|Effective Date of the Change and New Board Letter||
The staff member will be converted as of January 1st or August 1st, whichever date first follows the date of conferral of the PhD certificate. (Please note that the conferral date of the PhD certificate is not the same as that of the PhD dissertation defense.) A new Board letter will be issued confirming the appointment.
The tenure-track Assistant Professor appointment will be for three years, regardless of any work permit issued, if applicable. However, on Banner, the staff member can only be appointed to the end date on the current work permit.

A tenure-track position code must be used to process this type of change into the Banner System.
