Please Note: If Web Time Entry (online or paper time sheets) are not submitted to Payroll by the published deadlines, employees will not be paid on the current payroll run due to no time submitted for processing. After turning in a paper timesheet (for the missed pay period) the late payroll will be processed on the next regularly scheduled payroll processing date.

Departments: Please contact Human Resources, VPAA, or the Student Employment Coordinator about the process to hire employees, faculty or students. Payroll can't pay new employees until they have completed all the necessary hiring steps in each office and are setup in the system by those offices.

Mission and Regulations

The mission of the payroll office is to ensure that all employees of the University are paid timely and accurately while maintaining compliance with federal, state and University regulations and policies.  

Unfortunately in our current times of identity theft, for your security we may require you to visit our office (showing a photo ID) to make certain changes to your information and/or releasing any information. We understand that this may be a bit inconvenient but we must keep your personal data secure. Visiting the payroll office is considered part of your employee duties and supervisors should allow you time to conduct your payroll business during your normal working hours.
