    Students are required to complete the time sheet to receive monetary compensation for the services they provide. Students must utilize the electronic time sheet to report their worked time hours. A time sheet should be an accurate listing of the actual time and dates worked. The supervisors will verify that the hours worked are accurate. This document is the student's record of hours worked for the pay per period. The supervisor will submit the student's bi-weekly hours to the financial aid office. Federal Work Study students cannot volunteer their time and must be paid for all hours worked.

    The following information should be checked on the timesheet for accuracy:

    • No hours of a payroll period other that the one reported
    • The 20 hour per week limitation
    • Correct mathematical calculations
    • Class schedule information completed
    • Timesheet signed by student and supervisor
    • All corrections on time sheet are initialed by student and supervisor in ink
    • A 30-minute lunch break is mandatory as the minimum break for all students who work more than six (6) consecutive hours.

    Student employees must submit their timesheets to the office of Student Financial Assistance by the designated dates that are indicated on the Payroll Timesheet Calendar. Paychecks for timesheets that are submitted by the end of each respective pay period will be disbursed on those dates on the payment calendar. Timesheets received late will not be disbursed until the following pay period.
    The payroll calendar lists the pay periods and paydays during the current academic year.
