MoUs and Transfer Advising Program Guides must be submitted in Buyway (see procedure below). Before submitting an agreement in Buyway, you should confer with appropriate staff to ensure your agreement is sound. For undergraduate domestic agreements, contact Kathy Pruckno. For interational agreements, contact Karla Guinigundo. If you are on the Regional Campuses, contact Brooke Flinders

Once you have conferred with the appropriate staff, follow this procedure to submit your MoU or Transfer Advising Program Guide:

  1. Login to Buyway.
  2. Select the Contract Routing Academic Non-Financial tile on the home screen.
  3. Provide all requested information, taking care not to change or alter the "Commodity Code" in the "Routing Info" section.
  4. Attach a draft copy of the agreement in the "Attach Agreement Here" section. When naming your file, use this convention: yyyy_mm_EntityName_descriptor (e.g., 2016_01_LakotaWestHS_EHS_internship.docx).
  5. Select Add and Go to Cart in the top right of the form, then click Go.
  6. On the next page, click Proceed to Checkout in the upper right.
