Time Cards

As of fall 2011, Montana Tech will use pre-printed time cards instead of blank cards. Supervisors will receive pre-printed time cards via campus mail once Enrollment Services receives complete paperwork for each student employee.

Unless otherwise announced by Enrollment Services, all time cards are:

  • Due on the 18th day of each month (If the 18th is a weekend or holiday, cards are due on the next business day)
  • Only accepted if completed in ink, igned by the student employee, and signed by the supervisor
  • Only accepted if delivered by the supervisor, administrative associate, or other campus official. We will accept timecards from a student only if they are in a sealed envelope signed by the supervisor.

Please note, all student employees (hourly & stipend) must submit a monthly time card in order to receive a pay check.

Student Pay Checks

Students are paid on the 1st day of each month. Students that do not have direct deposit can pick up paychecks with a photo ID at the Business Office, MG 205.

  • If the 1st is on a Sunday or holiday, checks will be available the following business day. If the 1st is on a Saturday, checks will normally be available on Friday.
  • Students leaving for summer break that want the last spring check mailed to them should provide a self-addressed and stamped envelope to the Payroll Office, MG 303.

Students that would like paychecks electronically deposited should submit the Electronic Payroll Deposit form to The Budget & Human Services Office in MG Building, room 303.

  • The first check after signing up for direct deposit must be picked up at the Business Office, MG 205; subsequent checks will be electronically deposited.
