The Payroll Operations Manager in Financial Management Services will be responsible for establishing all payroll schedules, including pay dates.

Official pay dates will be determined as follows:
Monthly Paid Employees:
Payday will be the last business day in each month for monthly-paid employees. An exception to this schedule is the payment for December which will be paid on the first business day in January.
Student Academic Employees:
1. The first payday for student academic employees is September 15, or the first preceding work day if this date falls on Saturday, Sunday or a holiday.
2. The final payday for first semester will be paid in mid-December after the conclusion of the first semester.
3. The final pay day of the academic year will be paid at the end of the Spring Semester.
