Many jobs at NIU are civil service. These positions are classified by their duties/responsibilities and follow hiring and advancement procedures set by the State Universities Civil Service System (SUCSS).
If your duties and/or qualifications change over time, you or your supervisor can request an update to your classification through a position review. Also called a desk audit, a position review can result in reclassification into a higher position in the same promotional line or reallocation to a position in a different class (refer to SUCSS Statute and Rules, section 250.30, i and j).

Please note: If academic affairs, college level (dean or assistant vice president) and the department are unable to support the reclassification or reallocation of your position, we'll help your department restructure your job so it fits your current classification.
