Student Payroll/Work Study FAQ
When are student time cards due?
Time cards are due in the Business Office on the 1st of the month.
When do I get paid? You get paid on the 10th of the month during the academic year. For students working
over summer break, you will be paid on the same bi-weekly pay schedule as IWU non-exempt
employees. Payday is every other Friday.
Do I have to fill out tax forms? Yes, any student paid through student payroll must have a Federal and State W4 on
file. You must also show proper identification for the Federal I-9 form.
Where do I go to fill out tax forms? All tax forms for students are in the Financial Aid Office.
Do I have to sign my timecard? Yes, all timecards must be signed by the student and the supervisor. Unsigned timecards
will be returned to the department.
I lost my paycheck what do I do? Paychecks can be reissued after a stop payment has been placed on the lost check.
The person who lost the check incurs a charge equivalent to the fee assessed by the
payroll processor to void the check.
How long must I wait for a replacement check? A check normally must be outstanding for 30 days from the date of issue before the
Business Office places a stop payment on the check. A replacement check will then
be issued in the next pay cycle.
