As You Prepare to Leave FAU

    If resigning your position, give your supervisor a written resignation letter which includes the 
      effective date of your resignation

   If your address will be changing please change it in Workday.

    Return all University property to your supervisor (i.e. keys, building access card, cell phone,
      Owl card)

    Ensure that all outstanding debts to the University are satisfied. (i.e. return any library books
      you may have checked out, pay parking fines, etc.)

    Your final paycheck will be mailed to the home address you have on file with the University.

    Leave payout(s), if eligible, typically occur 1-2 pay periods after your final
       paycheck, and will be mailed to your home.

    Leave payouts are contingent upon the completed Separation Clearance Process.

    Prior to your last day, complete the online  Employee Exit Interview Survey  and return it to
      Human Resources via email, USPS mail or in person.
