Deadlines for New MyTrack Offers, Renewal Appointments and PRFs

In order to ensure timely delivery to payroll, the HR deadlines for new MyTrack offers, renewal appointments, and Payroll Request Forms (PRFs) are laid out below. The faculty deadlines reflect the requirement to deliver faculty appointments 30 days prior to their start date per the collective bargaining agreement with United Academics. In order to meet this requirement, we need to receive the documents a month in advance of the delivery date.

The originating office must build in time for review and approval by any other offices that have to sign off (Deans/Directors).


  • Submit as early as possible. Must be into HR by the 1st of the month they are starting in order to make it into regular payroll for that month.
  • New tenure track hires: April 1st**
