This article will give you an overview of the approver role. The approver role is typically assigned to people who have the authority to review an activity and recommend approval (Division Chair, Department Chair, Dean, etc). The terminal approver (Provost, Vice Provost, Chancellor, etc.) is the person who decides if a prior approval form is approved and for how long.

When the dean logs into UC OATS there will be a button that toggles between the approver and faculty workspaces.
