PAY SCHEDULE, DIRECT DEPOSIT and PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS
You will be paid every other Friday, either by check, or through direct deposit, which is available for most banks. The pay period is Monday through Sunday. If you were to be absent from work on a payday, your check or direct deposit statement would be held by your department, and you would make any arrangements with your supervisor to obtain it.
Direct deposit is a safe, convenient way to get access to your pay as quickly as possible. If you choose to enroll in the direct deposit program, the University will automatically deposit your pay, after deductions, into one or more bank accounts which you designate. You will receive a statement of deposit instead of a check, and your regular pay stub listing all the pay periods additions and deductions will be attached.
