Office of Postdoctoral Affairs - PeopleSoft Postdoc Web Forms Project

Department managers request PeopleSoft authority for their postdoc staff by submitting a HelpSU ticket.


The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs moved to PeopleSoft Web Forms as of August 12, 2011.  This process replaces the submission of appointments, extensions, funding changes, leave requests and other transactions which were done via paper forms and email.  The new system uses Workflow and a security setup that is akin to what is in place for other PS modules.  All campus staff users require prior training in order to receive authority to access the system.

Why did we do this?   View a presentation of the project scope and rationale.

Required PeopleSoft Training:
University staff who administer postdoctoral scholar paperwork are required to complete PeopleSoft training to receive PeopleSoft access.
