Payroll Administration

The mission of Payroll Services is to provide and promote the highest standards of payroll services to students, faculty, and staff in a pleasant, professional, and efficient manner.

Our primary objective is to help University departments produce timely and accurate compensation payments to employees, along with timely and accurate tax withholding and reporting to federal and state agencies.
