Job Classification and Job Description Change Request Forms and Guidelines

New Position Compensation Review Request Form (Online Form)must be submitted to Compensation to initiate the review process. This form is to be completed by a supervisor requesting evaluation of a new position.

New positions must have a written job description and must be classified in the college's salary grade system prior to opening and posting the position.   HR Compensation will establish the salary range classification of new positions based on job qualifications and required skills, job duties and responsibilities defined by the college, and market value for the job.

Position Reclassification Request Form (Online Form) -must be submitted to Compensation to initiate the review process. This form is to be completed by a supervisor requesting reclassification of an existing position.

HR will only consider requests for reclassification of positions when a department is 1) being reorganized, 2) the duties of the positions are being shifted, and there will be significant and sustained changes to the position, and/or 3) when the college is unable to recruit qualified applicants for the position because of its current classification. 


Job Description Change Request Form (Online Form) - A manager may request changes to an existing job description at any time during the year.  To submit a request to HR Compensation, please complete the Job Description Change Request Form. Requests must be submitted by the supervisor of the position (rather than the person in the position).


Note: Compensation will review Compensation Review and Job Description Change Requests in the order in which they are received and will send notification of the results to the submitting manager within 5 business days. 


CougarWorks Student Intern Program - Job Description Review Process (New program launched Spring 2023)

This is an abbreviated review process created to assist managers in producing a customized job description specific to their department and/or functional area for the CougarWorks Student Intern program. These are the steps to complete the review process:

  • Step 1 - Initiate Review Process: The manager will complete and submit the CougarWorks Student Intern Job Description Review Form (Online Form) -  This online form provides the basis for the manager to create a job description specific to a department/functional area for positions unique to Collin College students and aligns with specific programs at the college. Each department can customize sections of the job description with details specific to their department needs and/or job function.  NOTE: The hourly rate has already been established so no additional compensation/market analysis will be conducted during this review process.
  • Step 2 - Compensation Review: Compensation will review the job description and if needed, contact the submitter with any questions/concerns.  
  • Step 3 - Create New Workday Job Profile: Upon completion of the review, a job profile will be created in Workday for the manager to initiate the job requisition process.
  • Step 4 - Notification to Manager: Compensation will send an email to the manager when this process is completed.
