  • professor emeritus/emerita
  • associate professor emeritus/emerita 
  • senior faculty associate emeritus/emerita
  • faculty associate emeritus/emerita

Faculty emeriti continue to be members of the University community and are granted a number of privileges as enumerated in this document.
Professors and associate professors who have served Seton Hall University full time for at least ten (10) years as tenured members of the faculty may apply for the emeritus status upon their retirement. Faculty associates and senior faculty associates who have served Seton Hall University for at least fifteen (15) years as members of the faculty may also apply for emeritus status upon their retirement. Requests for emeritus status shall be made by the faculty member in writing to the appropriate Dean. If the request is approved by the Dean, the Dean shall forward the request with indication of Dean approval to the Provost. The conferment of the faculty emeritus or faculty emerita title shall be at the faculty member’s rank at the time of his or her retirement.
