Student employees: Some info before you go

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Before saying your goodbyes and hitting the highway there are a few payroll reminders …

  • First, please be sure to lock your time sheets. This will prevent any hold on your paycheck for a signature.
  • Second, be sure your address is up to date with mail services so your paycheck can find you.
  • Another great option is to set up direct deposit before you go, so your pay won’t be delayed by mail. Click this link for the direct deposit form.
