In Brief

Student timecards updated

Student employers should be aware of new guidelines for reporting student employee payroll. All hours reported for undergraduate students appointed through Student Employment should refer to the student's University ID number instead of the student's social security number, effective with the pay period September 12-25. New timecards have been designed to accommodate the eight-digit ID numbers. For additional timecards or timesheets, e-mail PERC at Payroll/
