Tenure Clock Stoppage

A faculty member may request, with no penalty, an extension so that the evaluation for tenure occurs one year later than scheduled under the initial letter of appointment.

Find it in your Faculty Handbook Section 2.9 TENURE POLICIES

A faculty member may request, with no penalty, an extension so that the evaluation for tenure occurs one year later than scheduled under the initial letter of appointment. The request will be in writing to the Provost and Vice-President of Academic Affairs with supporting documentation from the faculty member's dean and department chair. The request for an extension must be completed before the date that the faculty member's tenure application is due. If the request for an extension occurs before the faculty member's third-year review, the third-year review will occur in year four. An approval to stop the tenure clock and the approval of a leave of absence [Section 2.17] are not synonymous nor are they decisions directly related to one another.
