Students: It is your responsibility to "submit your time for approval" by the specified date each pay period. Not verifying your time entry will delay the processing of your pay check until the next scheduled pay date.

Supervisors: You must approve all time sheets by the stated date to ensure that your student employees are paid on the scheduled pay date.

Check Delivery: During the Academic year, student pay checks are delivered to the Kellogg Post Office and must be signed for. A form of ID is required to pick up your check.

Direct Deposit: Students are expected to participate in the direct deposit option for receiving their pay. A significant benefit of this program is the flexibility of not having to be on campus on pay day, particularly helpful for pay days that fall at the end of semesters and/or during breaks.

**For the dates indicated above. Your pay check will be mailed to your permanent Mailing Address on record with the College. If a student wants his or her pay check mailed to an address other than the mailing address on record the student must submit a self-addressed envelope and present his or her student ID at the time of delivery of the self-addressed envelope to Human Resources, located within Campus Safety.
