Position Classification Review

The California State University system has established classification standards for campus use. The standards specify the definition of a classification series, typical activities of a classification and the minimum qualifications.

Aside from establishing the basis for employment decisions, these standards also form the basis for position classification decisions.

A Classification Review, or commonly referred to as 'Reclassification Request', may be initiated in one of several ways:

  • By an Employee
  • By a member of management
  • By the Human Resources Department
  • Through the introduction of a new classification series developed by Faculty and Staff Relations in the Chancellor's Office.

Requests for Classification Reviews initiated by an employee or by a member of management may be submitted at anytime during during each fiscal year.

Reclassification Request packets include the following forms:

  • Request for Reclassification (required Vice President's signature)
  • Position Description Form
  • Supplemental Position Description Form for supervisory positions (complete only if required to supervise staff positions)

Reclassification Forms

Employees can submit a Reclassification request one of two ways:

  1. Physical (Paper) Forms
