Student Employees Moving to Biweekly Payroll
January 2nd, 2013
Good news for students! In response to student, faculty, and department requests, we are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2013, all undergraduate and graduate hourly positions, resident advisors and undergraduate monthly stipends will be moved from monthly to biweekly payroll. This increased frequency will benefit our students as they will receive payment earlier in their employment or stipend term and more often. These students will now be on the same schedule as biweekly non-exempt staff, and will continue to enter their hours in NOVAtime as they do today. After the December hours are paid in January, the system will change to the biweekly cycle. Instead of a monthly timesheet view in NOVAtime, students will view weeks per pay period. When approving timesheets in NOVAtime, supervisors will need to change the pay cycle from monthly to biweekly.
We are pleased to make this change for the benefit of our student employees, and are also committed to supporting departments through this transition. We encourage you to contact us if you need training or support.
