Payroll Information concerning the Coronavirus outbreak

All payroll online time submission procedures, due dates, and pay dates will remain the same and will not change during this time. As you work from home please make sure you are still submitting your timesheet on the appropriate days and/or approving your staff timesheets per the schedule.

Payroll will be processing as normal so if a late paper timesheet is need for non-exempt staff or regular student workers the supervisor can email the timesheet (with their approval to pay noted in the email) to and we will process without the staff member or supervisor having to visit our office.

If you are submitting a late Federal Work study timesheet, the supervisor should email it to Lindsay Monroe,, the Student employment coordinator for approval and she will forward to us for processing.

If you have Supplemental payments for exempt staff, those forms need to be submitted to Rilie Sibold,, per the due date emailed to the departments from VPAA.


Please Note: If Web Time Entry (online or paper time sheets) are not submitted to Payroll by the published deadlines, employees will not be paid on the current payroll run due to no time submitted for processing. After turning in a paper timesheet (for the missed pay period) the late payroll will be processed on the next regularly scheduled payroll processing date.

Departments: Please contact Human Resources, VPAA, or the Student Employment Coordinator about the process to hire employees, faculty or students. Payroll can't pay new employees until they have completed all the necessary hiring steps in each office and are setup in the system by those offices.
