Full Cycle Announcement: 

We are sharing an important update we received from UNC System Office about Full Cycle Performance:


The 2019-20 Full Cycle Performance for SHRA and EHRA non-faculty employees has been extended to June 30, 2020 to provide greater flexibility over the coming months.  

These changes mean:

  • The 2019-20 cycle will be 15 months long.
  • The 2020-21 cycle will be 9 months long.
  • Supervisors can continue to use their current (2019-20) employee performance plans through June 30, 2020.
  • 2019-20 annual appraisals will be due July 31, 2020.
  • 2020-21 performance plans will be due August 31, 2020.

Again, additional information, including options for those who have already completed a 19-20 appraisal, FAQs, and Full Cycle Online updates can be found on our 2020 update page.
