What does a student need to do to make sure their employment is finalized on time?

Weeks before the semester starts, speak to your advisor or professor you work with and ask if you are going to be appointed as an RA for the next semester.

Appointments are done using Docusign which requires that you sign the electronic paperwork asap when you receive an email.

How long does the appointment process take and how can I check the status?

Since you have to sign the appointment forms in Docusign, you can log in to Docusign at any time to check the status of your appointment forms. Additionally, when all forms are signed and the package is completed, you will get an automatic email that says “All signers complete.”
