The offering unit should prepare the Personnel Action Form (PAF), and obtain signatures of approval from the department chair and the college dean/division head. The PAF is then submitted to Human Resource Services for final approval and processing. In order to be processed, the documents outlined in the Human Resource Services Forms Matrix must accompany the PAF.

NOTE: If the assistantship is funded through a cost center requiring additional approvals, these approvals are required prior to submission.

Incomplete forms will delay, and may terminate, the processing of an assistantship appointment.
