Unclassified staff, including those with lump-sum appointments, are paid monthly, usually on the first of the month. If the first of the month falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or Federal Reserve holiday, the check is paid on the last business day preceding the pay day. The check for December is paid on the first business day of January.
The exact dates included in each pay period vary according to the institution's academic schedule. See the UW Service payroll page for detailed payroll schedule and legal holiday information.
Nine-month academic appointments receive a check October 1 through June 1. Compensation for summer employment, if any, may be paid on a different schedule. Consult your campus payroll office for this information.
Classified staff (including limited term employees) and student hourly employees are paid bi-weekly. The pay period runs for two weeks, Sunday through Saturday. Pay day is the second Thursday following the end of the pay period. If pay day falls on a holiday, the check is paid on the last business day preceding the pay day.
