Payroll Information

Paydays are the 1st and 15th of each month. If the 1st or 15th fall on the weekend or on a holiday, payday will be the following workday.

All regular benefits eligible faculty and staff are paid a fixed amount each pay period, i.e. 1/24 of annual salary for 12 month appointments and 1/18 of salary for 9 month appointments.

Temporary, non-benefits eligible staff and students are normally paid on an hourly basis and are behind one pay period. Pay is based on actual hours worked and cannot be determined until after time sheets are turned in.

Automatic paycheck deposit is currently available for faculty and staff. A Direct Deposit Form is required for this service. Paycheck stubs showing deductions and net pay are sent to the employees' departments on payday.

Employees without direct deposit must pick up their paychecks at the University Bursar's Office, located in room 103 (first floor) of the Estill Building. The employee must present a faculty/staff identification card or a valid driver's license when picking up a check. If you wish to have your check mailed, you must provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope with a full name and social security number printed on the inside of the envelope at least one day in advance to the Bursar's Office.
