Job Aid: Viewing and Uploading Documents to Nolij

Nolij is the software used to view documents uploaded to postdoc web forms. Postdoc candidates upload documents via the Information Sheet/Data Form. After Information Sheet approval, no further uploads to it are possible. The Postdoc can email additional documents to the Admin for upload to Nolij.

In Nolij, the Applicant ID (which is different than EMPLID or Student ID or SUNETID) is needed to view documents. The Applicant ID is found on the Information Sheet and the Recommendation Form. The Nolij field where the Applicant ID is entered is incorrectly labeled "EMPLID".
