Welcome to the Payroll Office

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the University has transitioned to a remote workforce to allow the University to remain open and operational. The decision aligns with our goal to lower the number of interactions on campus, slow the rate of transmission, and protect our community. 

The Payroll Office staff will be working remotely most days, and the Administrative Services Building is closed.  The best way to contact the Payroll staff is via e-mail.  We will be responding to e-mails at our earliest convenience. Please do not send sensitive information via e-mail.
