Payroll Information

Payroll Notice – for employees on the new Bi-weekly payroll and their supervisors

Effective July 1, 2017, all non-exempt staff, students, and hourly employees will change to Bi-Weekly payroll.

NOTE:

  1. There will be no exceptions to the bi-weekly timelines. There will be NO manual or expedited payroll runs for late or incorrect timesheets, even if a payroll deadline falls on a holiday or other non-working day. 
  2. Employees must know their Self-Service Banner Employee ID# and PIN to input and approve time.
  3. Timesheets will be ready for entering on the first day of a current pay period. A new hire or a rehire employee should have a timesheet available on his/her first scheduled working day. New or rehire employees should contact their home department first for a missing timesheet.
  4. No employee will be paid on both bi-weekly payroll and monthly payroll. If you have two positions, and one is non-exempt, you will be required to track and enter hours for both positions.
  5. No one-time pays will be generated for an employee who is paid bi-weekly. Payroll will be made according to the time submitted on the timesheet. (Monthly payroll is strictly for paying exempt employees, professors, adjuncts and teaching/graduate students.)

 

Refer to Bi-Weekly Payroll Schedule for updated information. Contact Payroll office at 880-8000 if you have more questions.
