Human Resources Frequently Asked Questions

Payday is the 15th and the last day of the month every month (e.g. May 31st). If the 15th or the last day of the month falls on a weekend, payday is the Friday before the 15th/last day of month.

Your first paycheck will be available for pickup in the HR office (Americus Campus) on pay day. Please be sure to bring ID with you.  If you do not pick your check up on payday or make other arrangements, your check will be mailed to your home address.

Please visit the Employee Self-Service to review your paycheck and/or update your address/tax information/direct deposit. Please see the staff development given to you during orientation for login information.

Your employee ID is located on your school ID or your first paycheck stub.

Your first check immediately following the change will be a live paycheck available for pickup in the HR office (Americus Campus). Direct deposit changes may take up to two pay cycles for the change to be effective.

You should first contact your division dean for clarification and/or help. If they are unable to resolve your concerns, please contact Karen Lewis at klewis@southgatech.edu.
