Courtesy Appointments

A Courtesy Appointment is an agreement executed to create a non-compensated affiliation between a non-employee and the university.

Courtesy Appointments should be approved by the Dean.  An offer letter should be executed which outlines the specifics and conditions of the Courtesy Appointment, including the benefit to the university and the candidate, start and end dates, and purpose of the arrangement.  The completed offer letter should be signed by the Dean and attached to a completed Courtesy Appointment PAF Form (or Courtesy ePAF).
