HR - Summary of Campus Codes used in Location / Appointing Department / Academic or Summer Pay Groups

GENERAL DESCRIPTION:

In HRS, each campus is considered a Business Unit. Each Business Unit has an assigned one-character alpha code (e.g. A, B, C, etc.) that represents that campus. The one-character alpha code is used throughout HRS as a campus identifier.

In particular, the alpha code is used as a prefix on the appointing Department field and the Location field which are displayed on an employee's Job Data record.

For employees with an Academic Year appointment, Summer Session or Summer Service appointment, the one-character alpha code is the second letter of their 3-character Pay Group code (e.g. CAR, SAR, VAR).
