Regular, full-time, salaried Staff Members employed to begin work after the first day of the month are compensated actual work hours to calculate the first paycheck, which is paid on the last workday of the month. The formula is:

Number of Actual Hours Worked X Wage Rate = Gross Pay

Following the first paycheck, the staff member's annual salary is divided by 12 months, which is distributed in equal amounts each month.


Regular, part-time Staff Members, paid by the hour, report their hours on a timesheet or timecard. Timesheets or timecards report the actual hour worked up to the payroll for payment on the last day of the month.


Temporary, full-time and part-time Staff Members, enrolled at Drury as a full-time student, report their hours on a timesheet or timecard. Timesheets and timecards report actual hours worked up to the payroll deadline, the last business day of each month. Time worked records are submitted to payroll for payment on the 15th of each month.


Temporary, full-time and part-time staff members, not enrolled at Drury as a full-time student, report their hours on a timesheet or timecard. Timesheets and timecards report the actual hours worked up to the payroll deadline, typically the 20th of each month. Time worked records are submitted to payroll for payment on the 5th of the month.
