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 15th and the last work day of each month.  

Approximately two days before pay day, you will be able to view your payslip in your Workday portal.  The payslip 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.
