Payroll Cycle Change

Effective July 1, 2018 paydays will be on the 15th and on the last working day of each month. All employees will be paid for work performed the 1st-15th of the month on the last working day of the month and receive pay for work performed on the 16th-last working day of the month on the 15th of the following month.

We appreciate that the switch might create personal budgeting changes. We encourage employees to consider and plan for the transition.  We are working out the details for a payroll advance that may be paid back in small installments (without interest, of course) for those employees who may need help making the transition. 

During the upcoming months, we will continue sharing information with you about the change and will be available to answer any questions you may have. Because different groups of employees (faculty, classified, administrative, professional, students) are currently on different payroll periods and systems, the change will affect different groups in different ways. You will receive information specific to your employee group.

One of the primary benefits of the change is to increase efficiency and reduce payroll-processing time, which will save money and improve service. It will also mean that employees are paid more frequently, that new employees may not have to wait as long for their first paycheck and that employees can see their current and correct leave balances through MAVzone. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Kandis Gillespie, Deputy Controller, if you have any questions or concerns by phone 248-1312 or email
