Pay Schedule

You will be paid monthly, on the last work day of each month, unless you are an extra help hourly employee. Hourly employees are paid on the 10th and 25th of each month.

Approximately three days before pay day, you will receive your Payroll Earnings, Deductions and Benefits Statement via WebBASIS or Email based on your selection of communication.  The statement indicates your gross pay, deductions, and the net pay that will be deposited into your account(s).  For benefits-eligible employees, information on university-paid benefits and coverage, as well as detailed information on leave usage, is included.

Employee Self-service

Direct deposit information and changes to your federal and state income tax withholding (W-4) can be self-managed through webBASIS. (The IRS has released the updated IRS withholding calculator in order to assist taxpayers to determine the appropriate withholding allowances for the new tax year.  Human Resources strongly advises employees to review their withholding to make sure the withholdings are accurate by using the IRS withholding calculator.)
