How Do I Get Paid?

Select the button below to obtain timesheets and the payroll schedule for student employees.

Students who do not enroll in direct deposit can pick up their paychecks on payday in the Cashier's Office in SSB Room 140. Please remember that if the campus is closed you will have to wait until the campus reopens to pick up your check. For those who wish to enroll in direct deposit, please fill out a direct deposit slip and attach a voided check, a letter or a form from your bank indicating the routing and account numbers for your account. Your check will be direct deposited on payday. If you would like to view your pay stubs, all employees at MSU Denver must log on to their Student Hub account and click the My Services/Registration tab. Click on the "My Services" link, click on the "Employee Services Menu," and finally click on "Pay Information." You can view your individual semi-monthly pay stubs.

On average, students work between 15 and 16 hours a week. However, students are allowed to work up to 30 hours a week while classes are in session and 40 hours a week during campus breaks. International students are allowed to work up to 20 hours a week during the fall and spring semesters. If an international, non-resident, student is not enrolled in classes for the summer semester, they must follow the University hourly policy. (For work-study employees, please refer to the „Earnings Chart‟ to determine how many hours a week you can work while remaining within your Maximum Earnings Level for the semester.)

Student employees are paid on a semi-monthly basis. Timesheets are legal documents and must be retained in each department for five years. Hours recorded on the timesheets must reflect actual hours worked within a specific pay period. Falsification violates University, State and Federal law. Student employees who falsify their timesheets will be subject to student judiciary processes related to fraud and immediate removal from the student employment program.  

Starting Fall 2015 student employees will transition over to Web Time Entry (electronic timesheets & payroll process).  Student employees will have until midnight the day after the payroll ends to submit the Web Time Entry Timesheet.  Supervisors will have until midnight the following day to review and approve all timesheets.  Any timesheets not submitted and approved by the deadline will need to be processed on the following payroll. Please contact the Office of Human Resources ASAP if your supervisor is out of the office during time entry. Manual checks will only be issued for emergency purposes.

  1. A supervisor must approve all of your timesheets in Web Time Entry. It attests to their knowledge that the information reported is a true reflection of your attendance. 
  2. MSU Denver takes timesheet fraud very seriously. Changing, altering or revising a timesheet without a manager's knowledge is a violation of MSU Denver and State policies. Also, reporting hours worked when you are not actually conducting University or State business is also a violation. These situations are all subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from Metropolitan State University of Denver. Employees may also be subject to felony charges such as larceny and forgery, one count for each timesheet.
  3. Supervisors who know, or have reason to know, that an employee is committing fraud, may also be subject to arrest and/or disciplinary action. All employees who review timesheets or approve them in the Self Services Banner (Web Time Entry) for payment must remember to check them carefully. Your approval means you are verifying the accuracy of hours listed.
