All regular staff, with the exception of those represented by a union, have a probationary period. Your supervisor can assist you in determining whether your position has a probationary period. The probationary period is used to assess your work behavior and performance.
Your probationary period starts the first day you begin working for the University and is six (6) months long. You will serve only one probationary period, even if you transfer or are promoted to another position. (SPG 201.43)
