Payroll

The Human Resources‘ Payroll Office issues payments to faculty, staff, and student employees of Columbus State University.

We also provide consultation to managers and users on payroll processes and procedures, and we assist employees with questions concerning their pay and deductions. For all employees, we work with external agencies and courts in providing the appropriate information when requested.


Guidelines & Instructions for Employees

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is the fastest, most convenient and most secure way to receive your pay. All employees will be required to have direct deposit of pay as a condition of employment.

Bi-weekly Payroll

This includes Non-Exempt Staff, Casual Labor, Student Assistant, and Federal Work Study employees

Time is used to collect the number of hours worked per period for bi-weekly employees. All hours worked per day are reported as REG hours. Overtime hours are hours worked over 40 hours per week. If a bi-weekly employee does not work any hours during the pay period, they need to report sick, vacation, etc., in order to be compensated.

Time must be submitted and approved by managers in OneUSG Connect by 3 pm on Friday, the end of the pay period, unless otherwise posted. We cannot guarantee check processing for time received after the deadline.


Monthly Payroll

Includes Full time Faculty, Part Time Faculty, Exempt Staff, and Graduate Assistant employees

For monthly employees, they are paid on a salary basis rather than hourly. Though, if the monthly employee does not work and is eligible, an absence must be submitted and approved.

Absences must be submitted and approved by the manager by the 15th of the month so that they can be processed in time for payroll processing.
