Change in paycheck distribution – EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY (3/18/2020)

We have been notified by the Office of the State Comptroller that due to the current COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic, all paychecks and direct deposit advices will be mailed home directly from The Treasury to the address printed on the front of your check. This change is effective with the next check beginning March 26, 2020 which is Student Assistant and Work Study payday. All paychecks and direct deposit advices for Students, Staff and Faculty will also be mailed this way until further notice

Please make sure that your address on the front of your check is correct. For all staff and faculty you must update your address in HR Self Service no later than March 24, 2020 for the April 1, 2020 check.

Student employees: your paycheck dated March 26th will be mailed to the address we already have on file for you. Unfortunately, because of the rapidly changing events it is already past the deadline to change your address for that payment. Please set a forwarding address with the post office ASAP if the address on your most recent paycheck was not correct. If you are able to access the HR Portal Self-Serve you can change your address there. If not please email and we will update your records.

We strongly recommend all of our employees sign up for direct deposit to avoid any delay in receiving your payments. To enroll, please complete a direct deposit form which can be found here:
