Important Information (PLEASE READ)

Direct Deposit

Your direct deposit will be automatically stopped if you have not had a check issued for 3 consecutive pay periods.  Please contact Payroll at 934-420-2325 to have your account reactivated.  If you are not sure, contact Payroll to check your direct deposit status.

If you have direct deposit and are switching banks or accounts, do not close the old accounts until you see that your payment is direct deposited intro your new account.  

Paycheck Checkup

The IRS has issued several reminders advising taxpayers to do a Paycheck Checkup.   Taxpayers can use the IRS Withholding Calculator (https://www.irs.gov/paycheck-checkup) to assist in determining the correct  amount of tax that they should have their employer withhold from their paychecks.   Checking and adjusting tax withholding as  early as possible is the best way to avoid having too little or too much tax withheld from paychecks. Too little withheld could  result in an unexpected tax bill or penalty at tax time next year.

Pay Schedules

College Work Study & Student Assistant Pay Schedule 3/2019 - 3/2020

Hourly Pay Schedule - 2020

Adjunct Pay Schedule - Fall 2019

The Payroll Office is responsible for the timely and accurate payment of all State employees including Professional and Classified staff, Student Assistants and College Work Study students. The Payroll Office processes all salary transactions, stipends, bonuses, inconvenience pay, pre-shift briefing, overtime meals, lost time, vacation and salary withholding.

Salary: Paychecks for all employees are received on a bi-weekly basis under a schedule established by the State of New York through the Department of Audit and Control in Albany, New York. Most full-time employees are processed on an annual salary basis paid bi-weekly (normally 26 pay periods) over a period of 12 months. Salary checks are distributed on campus by department on alternate Wednesdays.

Extra Service: Involves approved part-time service at an employee's own campus or another unit of State University. Payment is made by the employing unit. Prior approval of the President for Extra Service is required and is obtained by submission of an Extra Service Approval Form (UP-8 for UUP Bargaining Unit, UP-6 for Management/Confidential). There are restrictions on the amount an individual can earn on Extra Service. For faculty, the limitation is 20 percent of base salary for the academic year and an additional 20 percent over the summer. For Professional Staff, the limit is 20 percent of base salary for the calendar year. Please contact Human Resources or Payroll for further information.

College Work Study Payroll: This office has direct responsibility for the bi-weekly processing of the College Work Study Payroll.

Student Assistants: The College’s Student Assistant Guidelines have been updated effective with the Spring 2005 semester in order to provide departments with additional guidance on the employment of these student workers. It should be noted that these guidelines also apply to the employment of students in the College Work Study (CWS) program, so that the policies governing both types of employment are virtually identical. In all cases, departments should first attempt to employ students as CWS, since this serves two purposes that benefit the College. First, the salary expenses are not charged against the College’s budget, and second, it allows us to fully utilize our CWS allocation.

Students may contact Angela at 934-420-2742 or datenaa@farmingdale.edu with any paycheck related questions.
