Even though summer term ended 10 days ago, I had been waiting for my grade in Research to be corrected - and finally the correction has been noted in the grade system - yay! I did end up passing both classes. :)
Today was the first day of fall term. I am taking 1) Pharmacology and 2) Reproductive Anatomy & Physiology. Kind of looking forward to this term, as I feel I'm now getting into more of the "midwifery/women's health" type of classes.
I did go to HR and ask them for a transfer request form. They were very firm on the transfer policy (6 months in your current position), but they said they could not stop people from applying. Therefore I obtained a transfer request form and will hold onto it until November or December - at that point I will most likely fill it out and send it back to HR.
According to the employee handbook (which I had time to read early this morning at work), it just may be possible to transfer earlier than 6 months. Because in transfer section of the handbook, it says that if you have been in your current position for at least 6 months, you don't need a supervisor's signature on the form. Then it said you would need one if you had not been in your current position for at least 6 months.
So.....I can infer that it is possible to transfer early, as long as you have your manager's approval??
