Paydays & Pay Types

Nonexempt Staff & Exempt Employees

Nonexempt staff members are paid biweekly on every other Thursday. Each paycheck will include earnings for all work performed through the end of the previous payroll period. Pay periods end on the Saturday prior to each payday. There are 26 pay periods during a calendar year for nonexempt employees.

Exempt employees (faculty, administrative and professional staff) are paid on a monthly pay cycle. Exempt paydays occur on the second Thursday of each month. The actual date when the monthly employee receives his or her paycheck will vary, but will always be on the second Thursday of each month. Exempt employees are paid for the entire calendar month on each designated payday.
