By university policy, all pay for employees is made by electronic direct deposit. Payroll's distribution for employees is semi-monthly with distributions on the fifteenth (or prior business day) and the last business day of each month. An authorized (signed) agreement for automatic payments, which is included on the Personal Data Form, must be completed to initiate this process.

Human Resource Services has firm deadlines for employment processing; if the information is not received, payments may be delayed. Departments are expected to adhere to processing deadlines.

NOTE: Students be timely in submission of all required documents. Students must also be made aware that encumbrances, incomplete admission, or other problems could result in further delays in their ability to assume assistantship duties and in the processing of the assistantship appointment.
