Job Aid 6th Year Extension Change Requests

What to do if Your Postdoc Wants to Work Overseas


For Sixth Year Requests

  • Review Sections 2F and 2G of RPH 10.3 to see if you might qualify for an exception to policy.
  • If you think you might qualify, determine if you are applying under 2G or 2F.
  • All documents and web forms must be complete and submitted by the 2nd Friday of each month.
  • Standard 2G Exception Requests take 6-8 weeks. Expedited 2F Exception Requests are usually faster. Submit early (90-120 days+ prior to appointment end date).
