Pre-Retirement Reduction of Workload

Full-time faculty who have reached the age of 55 with ten years' service in the CSU (the last five in continuous full-time employment) may reduce their workload to 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 time during the five years immediately preceding retirement.  Those participating in the reduction in workload program retain full retirement, health and other benefits normally provided full-time employees.  Faculty interested in this program should submit a written request to the Academic Personnel Office (AD-102) at least six months in advance of the effective date of the reduction in workload.

Retirement Documents


Faculty not planning to return the following academic year should submit a letter of resignation to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and inform the department chair and college dean  as soon as possible.
