New payroll calendar announced


The 2015 payroll calendar is now available on the payroll website, and identifies key payroll dates and deadlines, including the direct deposit dates for both the biweekly and semimonthly dates. As stated in the Direct Deposit FAQ as a benefit of direct deposit for employees, “money will be deposited into your account early payday morning.” 

As a reminder, pay dates include the following:

  • Employees that are paid biweekly: Payroll will be direct deposited on the actual pay date every other Friday.
  • Employees that are paid semimonthly: Payroll will be direct deposited on the actual pay date. Semimonthly pay dates are the 15th and the last day of the month. When the pay date falls on a weekend, the pay date will be the Friday before.

In the past, some employees’ banking institutions may have made their funds available prior to pay day. Based on that expectation, biweekly employees may have established automatic payments to occur on Thursday rather than on Friday (pay day), which in turn may have caused them to incur overdraft fees.

  • For employees banking with Ohio University Credit Union who have been notified of such charges, OUCU has agreed to waive those fees. Employees should contact OUCU at 740-597-2800 or 800-562-8420 to request a waiver. They also will work with the individual to reschedule any future automatic payments.
  • Employees banking with Hocking Valley Bank who incur overdraft charges may contact Gail in HVB’s bookkeeping department at 740-592-4441 or 888-482-5854 to request a waiver. They also will work with employees to reschedule any future automatic payments.
  • Employees who may have incurred fees with other banks can contact Mary Alexander Conte at alexanm1@ohio.edu or 740-593-1862 for assistance in working with the bank.

As a final reminder, faculty and administrative employees paid on a semimonthly basis will receive their next pay on Thursday, Jan. 15. Please make note of this and review any automated payments that may be scheduled to occur prior to your direct deposit date.

Please contact Ohio University's Payroll Office at 740-593-1860 with questions.
