Payment Information

Each department is allocated funds for FWS and/or student payroll. Human resources provides each department with budget allocations in August. Given finite resources, FWS is given priority over student payroll. If you have questions about department budget allocations call human resources at (603) 641-7020.

Students are paid bi-weekly by the business office. Federal Work Study students use green timesheets and payroll students use yellow timesheets. Both timesheets can be found in the business office. At the end of the two week pay period timesheets are tallied, signed by the student and his or her supervisor, and submitted to the Business Office by 12 p.m. on Monday according to the pay schedule. View payment schedule online or pick up a copy in the Business Office (open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m.- 4 p.m.).
