Promotion and Transfer


The purpose of the Promotion & Transfer Policy is to provide greater opportunities for promotion from within, foster career development and to improve the upward mobility potential for qualified Florida Tech employees.

 The policy is designed to provide equal employment opportunity to all employees and job applicants. It is the policy of the university to have the best available person in every job. Consequently, positions will be filled with the best-qualified candidates without regard to race, sex, color, religion, creed, national origin or ancestry, age, marital status, disability, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity. 


When vacant or new positions are approved and posted, university employees may be promoted if they are qualified or could become qualified in a reasonable time. The university will select the best qualified applicant for the position.

Policy Statement

Generally, employees are expected to remain in their current position for at least six months before seeking a promotion or a transfer. Employees under corrective action, may not be considered for promotion or transfer for a 6-month period after the last documented corrective action date.


Interested internal applicants may apply for positions on the internal Workday Careers page.

 If interviewed and selected for the position, the current and new supervisors will coordinate the effective date of the transfer or promotion.


This policy is subject to amendment.
