Payroll Schedule

All employees are hired through Human Resources and must complete all paperwork prior to beginning work.

Payroll deposits for UCO are issued by the State of Oklahoma.  In order for deposits to be issued on the dates they are due, the payroll schedules must be followed without exception.  (See "Payroll Schedules" in the Payroll Forms Section.)

Hours worked for each hourly employee must be entered on UCONNECT and approved by the employee's timekeeper(s) within the designated schedule.  Non-exempt monthly employees must also complete their timecards within the designated schedule.  It is the individual departments responsibility to ensure that their employees will be paid the correct amount on a given pay date.

Bi-weekly and Student employees will receive payment every other Friday.  Monthly employees will receive payment on the last working day of each month.

Holidays

The University of Central Oklahoma observes certain holidays to be announced by the President of the University of Central Oklahoma.  Typical holidays are New Year's Eve, New Year's Day, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day. Employees scheduled to work on a University-approved holiday will be granted an equal amount of time off with pay on a date mutually agreed to by the employee and department director, if they were in a paid status on both the day before and the day after the holiday. 

To be eligible for University-approved holiday pay, an employee must be a regular full-time (75% or more) employee and, if regularly scheduled to work on a holiday, the employee must be in paid status on both the day before and the day after the holiday.

If a designated holiday falls within a vacation period it shall not be charged against vacation time.

An employee who is on paid sick leave when a University-approved holiday occurs will receive holiday pay instead of sick leave pay.  

Any regular full-time employee required to work on a holiday will be entitled to a substitute holiday off as scheduled by the supervisor.  If an employee is scheduled to work on a University-approved holiday and becomes ill, the employee will receive sick pay for that day and receive his or her substitute holiday as previously scheduled by the supervisor.
