Separation Procedures and Exit Interviews

Employees terminating employment with the University are required to check out with various offices on the date of termination. An "Employee Separation Checklist" form is utilized during the check out procedure. This is a formalized procedure which provides an opportunity for individuals to discuss pertinent matters with appropriate University representatives.
