Dear employees,

Metropolitan State University of Denver will be executing an early payroll run to ensure optimization of the updated Workday process and address any area of opportunity in a timely fashion.

The University’s payroll date will remain the same (the last working day of the month), but to maximize time to address any errors, January’s disbursement will take place one day earlier on Jan. 30.

All employees should review their payslip in Workday and verify that pay was deposited into their accounts on Jan. 30. Student employees who do not use direct deposit may pick up their checks at the Cashier’s Office per the normal process on Jan. 30.

Please report any pay issues by 9 a.m. on Jan. 31 via or the ITS Service Desk at 303-352-7548.

The types of errors that should be reported are:

  • not receiving any pay on Jan. 30
  • receiving the wrong amount of pay

Please note that you may see legitimate differences from the last payroll due to requested changes in benefit deductions, scheduled update of tax tables, etc. Depending on your circumstances, the changes from taxes could range from zero to a few hundred dollars.

Thank you very much for your patience and partnership as we continue the Workday transformation process.

Larry Sampler
Vice President for Administration, Finance and Facilities and Chief Operating Officer
