Payroll Services

Payroll Services within the Shared Services Department manages all of the functions related to payroll including direct deposits, taxes, garnishments, grant payments and effort certifications, and the electronic timekeeping system (PioneerTime). 

Pay Cycles

The University of Denver has two payroll cycles, a monthly cycle and a biweekly cycle.

Typically the monthly cycle includes exempt professional benefited staff and faculty as well as adjunct faculty, graduate assistant, long term and one time non-appointed pays. The biweekly cycle includes non-exempt benefited support staff, union, work-study, student and non-benefited hourly employees.

Payroll calendars are available in PioneerWeb under Employee > Administrative Processes > Payroll.

Forms & Electronic Processes

The Shared Services Center is in the process of greatly reducing the number of paper forms needed for payroll transactions. All forms and processes have been moved to the Employee Tab on PioneerWeb.  You can find them on the Administrative Processes Channel in the Payroll Folder.

International Employees (Students, Post-Docs, & Visiting Professors)

Prior to receiving your first paycheck from the University, international employees should contact the Payroll Services (303-871-2914) or payroll@du.edu  to schedule an appointment to determine your tax residency for employment tax purposes.  

If you do not already have a Social Security card you must apply for one prior to your appointment.   Information regarding this process can be found on the International Student and Scholar Services website (http://www.du.edu/isss/index.html).
