Approving a Faculty Additional Employment Appointment

This article covers how authorized approvers in a department/college can use the Temp Faculty module to approve Faculty Additional Employment Appointments.

You may want to check in with the department coordinator to ensure that the appointments are ready for approval before proceeding.

1. Review the Appointment & Check Ready to Print Box

You will not be able to review appointment details on the FAE Approval page, so you will need to review the appointments on the Faculty Additional Employment Appointment page prior to approving.

Marking the appointments as ready to print will generate a PDF of the contract that can be retrieved by the department processor after the FAE Payroll Report is submitted.

Some colleges have the processor check the Ready to Print box at the top of the contract screen prior to notifying the college approver that the appointment is ready to approve.

Keep in mind that if you check the Ready to Print box and then changes are made to the contract, you may end up with multiple contract PDFs for the faculty for this same contract. You will need to be careful to retrieve the updated contract PDF and not the outdated one.
