You Just Started Working at KU, When Will You Get Paid?

To find out when you will get paid look at a current calendar on the Payroll Office Website. Pay Periods are listed first followed by the date of the Direct Deposit. For example; if you are starting work on 08/18/2015 you are a few days in the pay period that began on 08/16/2015.  Pay Period 8/16/2015 - 08/29/2015 deposits on 09/11/2015 and will be a partial pay period since you did not work Sunday or Monday.

You can normally view your "pay check stub" on the Monday before a pay date, by going to Log in using your KU email information. Then in the Main Menu pick Self Service, then Payroll and Compensation, and then View Paycheck. It is a good idea to check your pay stubs ahead of the pay date so that if any errors have occurred you can email the Payroll Office immediately, to expedite a method of correction.
