Faculty Relocation Policy    

Newly appointed faculty may be eligible for relocation expenses if they meet the IRS minimum distance requirement. The current requirement is a change in job location that increases one-way commuting distance from the old residence by at least 50 miles.  Please refer to your appointment letter for details regarding your eligibility.
