student hiring POLICies

The Electronic Payroll Authorization Form (EPAF) system for student hires requires that supervisors of student employees, timesheet approvers or proxies, and any administrative personnel who submit PAs complete training and pass an associated quiz before hiring students. If you have completed training, the Student EPAF channel and the workflow worklist channel will automatically appear, within 72 hours, in your MyIIT portal. Read more about this training here.
