Training Waiver Policy

To ensure that faculty and staff have the knowledge to use the systems correctly, training is required before access is granted.  Requests for Training Waivers are considered on a case-by-case basis, by reason of previous work experience or prior M-Pathways or PeopleSoft training.

NOTE: Not all training waiver requests are approved. For example, requests for Training Waivers are not approved for M-Pathways Financials roles that are permitted to encumber U-M funds (i.e., P-Card, eProcurement Requisitions, non-PO vouchers, etc).
