State universities civil service system

State Universities Civil Service System

  • An “Academic Professional” is defined as an employee who is:

    • charged with high level administrative responsibilities,

    • whose decisions are based on administrative polices, and,

    • who exercises discretion and independent judgment. 

  • An AP performs these duties with only general administrative supervision or direction, e.g. Director, Associate or Assistant Director. 

  • AP can be defined as an employee who is in a position requiring knowledge of an advanced type in a field of science or learning customarily acquired by a prolonged course of specialized intellectual instruction and study (as distinguished from a general academic education) and which requires the consistent exercise of discretion and judgment, e.g., physician, attorney, engineer, architect (36e(3) exemption).

  • “It is important to remember that there was never any intent to permit or condone the conversion of traditional civil service jobs to exempt status merely by virtue of the fact that the position duties and responsibilities may appear to correspond to the general function statement of any [AP] title. The prominence of position duties and responsibilities must directly correspond to the position standards contained in the general PAA title used in order to validate the exemption. ” 

  • Following are the approved 36e(3) position titles (in order of promotion progression):
