Payday Schedule

PSU provides pay to employees monthly. The following information outlines when you can expect to receive pay each month, the types of documents that are essential to an accurate and timely payroll and the established deadlines for receipt of documents.

Payday Schedule

Pay is distributed the last business day of every month. For example, if December 31st is on a Sunday, you will receive your paycheck on Friday, December 29.

9-Month Contract Employees: Employees who are on a 9-month contract are paid from September 16 through June 15 each year. As a result, September and June are partial month pay. A 9-month employee may elect to be paid over a 12-month period by completing the Authorization for Twelve Month Payroll Redistribution form no later than September 15 of each year.

Payroll Documents

The various pay documents that must be received are:

  • Letters of Offer/Notice of Appointment
  • Any notice of a pay change, stipends, out-of-class, merit or special increase, etc.
  • Appropriate time sheet and/or leave roster

Late documentation may result in a late pay check and create liability for the University under state and federal laws governing timely pay. Any penalties due to late documentation will be charged back to the individual department. For reference to time sheet and leave roster forms, please visit our Timesheets page.

Payroll Deadlines

To ensure accurate and timely payroll process, all payroll-related documents must be received by the Office of Human Resources by 5 p.m. on the 10th of each month. The only exception is time sheets and/or web time entry for hourly employees which are due on the 16th of each month.
