Payroll & Earnings

The Payroll Services office facilitates the accurate and timely payment of employees on each of the three campuses. The offices also manage payroll schedules, earnings, deductions, taxes, and time reporting.

All employees at the University of Illinois are paid either on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. The University pays bi-weekly employees every other Wednesday approximately 10 days after the pay period end date. The University pays monthly paid employees on the sixteenth of the month following the service dates of the 16th through the 15th. If the sixteenth of the month falls on a weekend or holiday then the pay date is the last work day prior.

Please note the due date for paperwork to be submitted to Human Resources for each pay period. It is extremely important these due dates are adhered to if an employee is to be paid their full pay check on pay day. Any questions regarding the Payroll Schedules should be referred to Payroll Services at: 

  • UIUC: 217-265-6363

  • UIS: 217-206-7211

University Payroll Customer Service Center is available to help employees and departments understand and work with the payroll process, responding to approximately 3,000 requests for assistance every month. If you have any payroll questions, please contact us for help.
