Unclassified Specific Payroll Information

Payroll Home Page


Pay Period

Non-faculty unclassified employees (administrative directors, instructors, executives, limited appointees, and academic staff professionals) are paid the first of every month for work that occurred in the preceding month. If one such employee begins during the month, on the 14th, for example, that individual would receive 16 days of pay for that month (based on a 30-day calendar month). If that employee worked the entire month, he or she would be paid for all 30 days (based on a 30-day calendar month). Twelve month employees are paid on an annual or 12-month contract basis.

Nine month, or school year, employees (faculty, ad hocs (instructors), lecturers, and coaches) are paid for 9 months. Their contract year begins usually the last week in August through the 3rd week in May. This group of faculty and staff are also paid the first of the month and receive their first paycheck on October 1.
