Joint Appointment Form Help

The Joint Appointment Form is available in MS Word format. Although it may be completed by hand, we strongly encourage you to complete it electronically so that you can take advantage of the built in drop-down boxes. Please do not enter paragraph returns or spaces, as this will cause the form to move onto 2 pages.

Once the form has been completed electronically, print it, have it signed and forward it to Faculty Relations or Human Resources (as appropriate). Please ensure all necessary signatures are provided, along with all applicable fields. Missing information or signatures will result in paperwork being returned to the Department and/or Faculty and will delay the processing of the appointment.

FEEDBACK: If you have any questions regarding the use of this form, or any suggestions on how to improve it, please click here. All feedback is valued.

When complete, send this form to Faculty Relations (faculty appointments) or Financial Services (staff appointments).
