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 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 You will need to be careful to retrieve the updated contract PDF and not the outdated one.

You will see a message at the top right of the screen when the appointment has been saved.

8. Once you have finished entering all of the Faculty Additional Employment work break appointments, contact your College or Program Head Approver to let them know you have Faculty Additional Employment summer (work break) appointments to be reviewed and approved.

Each college may handle this part of the process differently. Contact your College or Program Head Approver to inquire how they want you to notify them of appointments that need their approval.

The authorized college/unit approver must approve the Faculty Additional Employment appointment.
