Faculty and staff employees exempt from the overtime provisions of the Federal Wage and Hour Law will receive their checks on the last banking day of each calendar month. Faculty employed for the nine-month academic year will receive one-ninth of the total appointment beginning with September and ending with May of the academic year. Nine-month faculty may elect to participate in a twelve-month pay plan to receive their nine-month salary over a full twelve months. For more information concerning the twelve-month pay option, contact the Department of Human Resources.

Staff employees subject to the overtime provisions of the Federal Wage and Hour Law are paid on an hourly rate and receive a bi-weekly check every other Friday. Employees paid on an hourly rate must keep accurate records of time worked and must submit a time sheet on a bi-weekly basis.

Faculty and staff member checks written on the monthly and bi-weekly payrolls are required by the University to be electronically deposited with financial institutions. Checks for graduate students who have assistantships are paid on the monthly payroll; however, electronic deposit is not mandatory for these employees.   Faculty and staff members should submit any changes to their electronic deposit authorizations to the Comptroller’s Office.
