Payroll at NMU

The Payroll area of Human Resources processes bi-weekly payroll for faculty, staff, and student employees. This includes processing of salaries, wages, tax withholding, and other deductions. Payroll also issues the annual Forms W-2 Earning Statements.

NMU has a bi-weekly pay cycle with pay periods beginning on Sunday and ending on the following Saturday.  Paychecks are issued 12 days after the pay period ends on a Thursday. New employees may have a three to four-week delay depending on the week of the payroll cycle in which they begin employment. Paychecks are now 100% electronic with two convenient options - direct deposit to your bank account or a Visa pay card. Pay stubs, leave time balances, earnings history, deduction history, and other wage information can be viewed through MyNMU.

Our goal is to provide professional and friendly service! As always, our payroll staff is here to help you. If you have any questions about payroll, please call the Human Resources Office at 227-2330 or email us at Our office is located at 105 Cohodas Hall.
