These are interim guidelines. These guidelines are to be used in addition to the policies, procedures, and exhibits provided in the Academic Personnel Manual (APM) and APM-UCD. Final guidelines will be established after formal Academic Senate review. If an apparent conflict between the APM and the Step Plus guidelines is discovered, please contact Academic Affairs for guidance.
Note: Service in a compensated position (e.g., dean, associate dean, department chair) does not constitute outstanding service in Step Plus. Outstanding accomplishments in the administrative position are recognized at the time of review in that position. Service beyond that expected of the administrative position may warrant additional half-step advancement.
