VISITING SCHOLARS – CWID, MYBAMA, & EMAIL ACCESS
If a Visiting Scholar will not be paid by the sponsoring department, departments must separately complete the Visiting Scholar Request Form and a “New Faculty/Staff Setup” Form.

The Visiting Scholar Request Form should be submitted to Karla Nicholson, knichols@ua.edu, in Academic Affairs for approval and processing

The “New Faculty/Staff Setup” Form should be submitted to HR at payrollinput@fa.ua.edu.

These forms will generate a CWID Number, Action Card, Email, WiFi, and computer systems access as well as access to UA Libraries and other campus facilities.

Paid employees of UA will be hired and entered in the UA payroll system as they would for any other new hire, and the Visiting Scholar Request Form is not required.
