Work Study / Student Employment Pay Dates:

Work study students (student employees) use the electronic timeclock at the beginning and end of each shift to record hours worked. Every two weeks, the electronic timesheet is submitted to the student’s supervisor for payment authorization. Timesheets must be submitted by 4:30pm on the day following the end of the pay period (every other Wednesday). A full list of pay periods, timesheet due dates and pay dates for the full school year is available below.
