Primary Information

    A transfer is a change of assignment from one position to another typically in the same pay range level, and may occur within the same department or between departments. A transfer may result from a request made by either the University or an employee and may be initiated for various reasons. Such transfers may occur, for example, in order to develop the career of an employee, or to provide an employee with the opportunity to work in an area where the employee’s full potential can be realized. Transfers may also be made when a position or job is to be phased out, as with the end of a sponsored research project.

    Note a Transfer should not be used when someone is going from one Employee Type to another unless it is Faculty-Staff or Staff-Faculty (Other changes, such as Post Doc to Faculty, Staff to Temp, Student to Staff, etc. require a Separation followed by a Hire)
    For more information on transfers at Tufts University, please see the Employee Handbook or visit the Compensation Programs and Staff Development and Compensation pages on AccessTufts. 
    Contact your HR Business Partner if you have additional questions about transfers.
