General Authorization Forms

Please allow a minimum of 7 business days for review and approval.

New SSW faculty and staff members will need to have a UA DocuSign account established for them. Please contact Darcel Green dmgreen@ua.edu to setup your account. Existing SSW faculty and staff should already have an account established, so please email Darcel Green for account access issues.

Travel Authorization Forms

Please allow a minimum of 7 business days for review and approval.

For in-state travel, please submit your SSW Travel Authorization form and In-State Budget Worksheet for review and approval.

All overnight travel to out-of-state destinations must be approved by the traveler’s supervisor via a Pre-Trip Approval Form prior to committing to travel-related expenses. When approved, you will receive a PDF of the approved form that you should then submit with your SSW Travel Authorization Form and Out-of-State Budget Worksheet for review and approval. If presenting at a conference, please also attach a copy of your abstract acceptance.

Note: If a trip is fully covered by contract and grant funds, then the Pre-Trip Approval Form is not required.

SSW Faculty and Staff Leave Request Form

All SSW faculty and staff members are required to submit a SSW Faculty & Staff Leave Request Form PRIOR to taking annual and/or scheduled sick leave.

UA time off policies and procedures apply to your leave. The SSW Faculty & Staff Leave Request Form is for internal use and does not remove or supersede any UA leave requirements. For UA time off information, please visit: https://hr.ua.edu/employee-resources/time-off-options.
