8 8 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Example of the Enrollment Verification Report:

9 9 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Eligible to hold appointment (GRA or GSA): Student is enrolled FT (9 hrs), degree bound major (G20F) & is not on admission or academic probation (A1, 3.56). However, they have not completed and passed the SESF so cannot be a GTA.

10 10 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 NOT Eligible to hold appointment: Student is on admission probation* (P1) & even though she has a Cumulative GPA of 3.71, she has not completed 9 hours of graduate coursework *Admission probation latest decision codes include P1, P2, PK, PR, TB, TP, TR & TS. To be removed from admission probation student must complete 9 hours of graduate coursework with a Cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher. Note- there may be instances where a student may remain on probation even though the GPA appears to meet the requirements for removal of probation. If unsure on whether probation has been cleared, contact the Graduate School.

11 11 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 NOT Eligible to hold appointment: Student is on academic probation (Cumulative GPA under 3.00).

12 12 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Eligible to hold appointment (GRA & GSA, not GTA until SESF): This is a new student so there is no Cumulative GPA. Since the latest decision does not show being admitted on probation (P1,etc.) it means the student is not on probation.

13 13 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 NOT Eligible to hold a appointment for the future semester/term: Student is eligible to hold an appointment for the current term but is NOT eligible to hold an appointment for the next term (201020) because they will be on probation.

14 14 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 NOT Eligible to hold a appointment for the future semester/term: Student has been admitted for the next term (201020) and would appear eligible to hold appointment BUT the Graduate School will not approve future appointments until student provides final transcript reflecting the ward of their degree.

15 15 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 NOT Eligible to hold appointment: Student is not a degree bound student (G40W).

16 16 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 NOT Eligible to hold an additional appointment during current semester/term without an approved exception: Student is currently working the maximum hours (20) so cannot accept an additional appointment during this semester.

17  Contractual terms include  Work (Personnel) start and end (termination) dates  Pay period start and end dates  Hours per week (or hours per pay in ePAF)  Stipend  Contractual terms must be considered simultaneously in order to avoid falling below the minimum hourly rates established by the University. 17 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Defining the contractual terms of the appointment

18 18 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Example Appointment contract (highlighted text comes from ePAF & Banner, contract may include addition information on in-state rates)

19  Work dates (called ‘personnel date’ in ePAF)  dates in which work is actually performed  will appear on the student’s contract  may not match the pay period dates but shouldn’t diverge by more than 2 weeks  Payroll dates (called ‘pay period’ in ePAF documentation)  do not appear on student’s contract  pay period dates do not reflect work dates but are instead based on fixed payroll cycles  to avoid having Banner report the appointment stipend as below the federal minimum wage, you may need to adjust the pay period dates  Hours per week  cannot exceed 20 across all active appointments  must be one of the following: 5, 10, 16, 20 (will be multiples of 2 for ePAF entry)  one time payments should be entered as 1  Stipends (called ‘annual salary’ in ePAF)  semester/term specific, total amount to be paid to student for appointment  must not fall below minimum hourly rates (see handout). 19 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Contractual terms continued:

24 24 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Let’s say I want to have a GA start working on 1/18/2010 and end on 5/7/2010, what pay period dates do I choose:

25 25 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 05/01/2010

26  Review  Personnel dates are when work is actually performed and appear on the contract  Job Effective dates are fixed payroll cycles, do not reflect when work is performed and are not printed on the contract  As a general rule, if the work (personnel) start and/or end dates occur between Jobs Effective dates do the following:  for the Jobs Effective start date: choose the next available pay period date after the work (personnel) start date (pushing forward)  for the Jobs Effective end date: choose the previous available pay period date before the work (termination personnel) ending date (pulling backward). 26 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Reconciling Work (Personnel) and Payroll dates (Jobs Effective)

27  The Appointment Contract will print the name of the student’s supervisor  The supervisor is responsible for making sure that the student abides by university regulations  In some cases, the student will be performing work for several individuals in which case the supervisor should be the primary contact person  The supervisor must be a university employee. 27 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Appointment’s Supervisor

28  Work Department (called ‘Home Organization’ in ePAF)  The location in which the student performs their appointment  Normally this is the time sheet org of the department even in the case of grants and contracts administered by ORA  The work department, along with the supervisor, are responsible for making sure that the student abides by University regulations  Funding Source (called ‘Distribution Organization’ in ePAF)  Funding source may or may not be related to the work department  Funding sources include grants and contracts controlled by the Office of Research Administration (ORA)  Funding sources for graduate appointments come from pooled position numbers that are defined by both GA type and funding source codes (e.g., UGRA/Mill Levy funding, see handout). 28 (c) Wichita State University rev.11/24/09 Work Location and Funding Sources
