What is the NextGen Graduate Appointments System?

In an effort to streamline the current processes of hiring, modifying and separating graduate assistants, the Graduate School has collaborated with Enterprise Application Systems (EAS) to create the NextGen Graduate Appointments System. This new system will replace the current tools for hiring, modifying and separating graduate assistants through the Start Employment Profile and the VPAF Process. 
 
The NextGen Graduate Appointment System is customizable by departments, colleges and/or non-academic divisions based on a series of roles. This system will allow graduate faculty members or designated staff to electronically initiate transactions on behalf of their students. Transactions will then route to the appropriate human resources and funding approvers as well as create an electronic Terms and Conditions contract based off of the information entered into the tool. The electronic Terms and Conditions contract will route to the student and supervisor for electronic signature and will be archived within MyPack Portal for historical reference.
