ePAF Tips If you have an employee that is teaching and does not have an appointment in your Department you must use title Associate Instructor (9124). -Even if the employee has an appointment on campus If there is an individual who is not showing up in your DJobs and their appointment has previously been approved, please submit an ePAF and state in the comment box “appt previously approved” If you are submitting an ePAF for a regular faculty member and do not have the I-9, you will still use the regular faculty title, not unpaid faculty.
If a faculty member’s pay is ending but the appointment will continue, you will need to submit an ePAF to change them to unpaid faculty. This will ensure that your record number stays with your department. You can then use that same record number when you need to pay them again. If there is something that you would like us to know or think would be helpful, please add it to the comment box. It is critical to list all education not just terminal degree! First click on the magnifying glass, click on the description box and choose “contains” in the drop down box, then type the institution name or one word in the description box. Make sure it is in ALL CAPS. Call us if you still can not locate the school code.
When the employee ID is assigned the next day all IT functions like provisioning an account, UCard, Building Badge, and Library Labs access will be available. The current Bus Pass/Trax Pass business policy only allows bus passes to be given once the individual is paid.

Ron Wells in the Ucard Office is the contact on bus pass issues. W-4 forms should be send directly to tax services for processing (411 Park Building) or completed on line in CIS by the employee.
