2023 Fall Mass Appointments

Message to department representatives

This message has been approved by Shelley Lopez, Program Director, Communications/Special Projects, for distribution to all Department Representatives.

Large volumes of Graduate Assistant and Faculty Reappointments must be completed each semester. The Mass Appointments process aids by allowing you to reappoint more than one employee at a time.

Fall 2023 Graduate Assistant Mass Appointments

Fall 2023 appointments should have a minimum appointment period of at least five (5) business days before the first day of classes through the last day of finals, as outlined in the academic calendar. Appointments for teaching assignments that require grading duties must continue through the grade submission deadline. Graduate assistants who are appointed in both the Fall 2023 and Spring 2023 semesters should have a continuous appointment between semesters without a break in funding.

Graduate Assistants utilizing a Summer LOA should be reappointed via the Mass Appointments process.

GA Mass Appointments are entered by Department Representatives in OMNI HR and then made available in batches to Department Managers for approval. As a reminder, effective August 8, 2022, a minimum of $20.83 per hour is required. Please ensure your period amount is calculated at this hourly rate.

Fall 2023 Faculty Mass Appointments   

With the exceptions noted below, the OMNI HR online Mass Appointments process will produce Fall salaried appointments for 9-month and 10-month faculty needing E&G, Auxiliary, and Contract and Grant appointments. Most salaried Fall appointments, including existing appointments, should be entered into the OMNI HR "Enter Mass Appointments" screen by staff in each Dean's, 'Director's, or Vice 'President's office. 

Faculty on Leave

Faculty members who are currently on a paid or unpaid leave of absence (including sabbaticals) will not be included in the Mass Appointments screens. Please submit a pPAF to return these faculty members from leave and appoint them for the Fall. 

Visa Tab

Note the "Visa" tab on the Faculty Mass Appointment screen. If a faculty member's work authorization information is not current in OMNI HR, you will not be able to appoint the faculty via Mass Appointment. Instead, send the updated work authorization documents and an ePAF to Human Resources to complete the Fall appointment. Attach the work authorization to the ePAF.
