As a result of the extraordinary circumstances associated with COVID-19, the University of Washington is offering automatic approval for all faculty who request a waiver for the 2019-20 or 2020-21 academic year to automatically extend their promotion and/or tenure clock by one year.

All faculty with mandatory promotion and/or tenure clocks, who are in the probationary period of their appointment term during the period of winter quarter 2020 to spring quarter 2021 are eligible.
