Payroll

The Payroll Office is responsible for processing payroll for all JSU employees with payments distributed on a Biweekly or a Monthly payroll.

Biweekly Payroll

Electronic Biweekly time sheets are available on MyJSU and are due per the schedule published under the Calendars section. When an employee takes time off for any reason, an Electronic Leave Request Form must be completed and approved by the supervisor and/or a Human Resources representative. Employees on the Biweekly payroll are paid every other Tuesday. Pay dates can be found on the Payroll Calendar.

Student employees with employment contracts that are paid an hourly rate for hours worked, are paid on the Biweekly Payroll. This would include Federal Work Study contracts and some University Student Assistant contracts. Student web time sheets are available on MyJSU and are due per the schedule published under the Calendars section.

Monthly Payroll

Electronic Monthly time sheets are available on MyJSU and are due per the schedule published under the Calendars section. The time sheet is an exception report for non-classified employees – instead of submitting hours worked, employees submit hours of leave taken. Monthly employees are considered at work unless some type of leave or other exception is reported. When an employee takes time off for any reason, an Electronic Leave Request Form must be completed and approved by the supervisor and/or a Human Resources representative. (For faculty members, time sheets are sent to each department approximately the second week of each month.) Employees on the Monthly payroll are paid on the first banking business day of the month (Monday - Friday unless it is a bank holiday). Pay dates can be found on the Payroll Calendar.

Student employees with a Graduate Assistant, Graduate Research Assistant, Graduate Teaching Assistant, or a University Student Assistant contract receiving a monthly stipend amount are paid on the Monthly payroll. Student web time sheets are available on MyJSU and are due per the schedule published under the Calendars section.
