Our payroll is completed using the HRIS Banner software. Banner payroll features are reflective of the diverse population of employees representing all position types, as well as many countries of residency or citizenship. We are committed to quality customer service and processing our payroll accurately and on time in compliance with federal and state regulations.

Western Oregon University processes payroll once per month, issuing paychecks on the last business day of the month. All manual paychecks are to be picked up at the Human Resources Office, on the third floor of the Administration Building. If a manual check is not picked up within 20 days of the date issued, the check will be mailed to the employee’s address. Please make sure that any change of address is updated with the Human Resources Office to avoid not receiving your paycheck or W-2. An Address Change Form can be located under our Forms page beneath the Current Employee Resources tab.

Failure to submit documentation timely may result in the issuing of a paper manual check (for those who typically receive direct deposit) or a late check.
