  • The Students need to be enrolled in the current semester in order for the creator to be able to use the electronic form

  • All Persons creating awards should consult with their appropriate CAO (Does everyone know who their CAO is?)

  • Awards the are created that have any special instructions should have an explanation provided in the comments field. i.e. one depart creating an award for another department.

  • Any person that need view access to the database need to request this from IT (Paul Adame).
