Payroll Office

The Payroll Office makes sure all University employees—including student employees, faculty, administrative staff, and support staff—are paid promptly and accurately.

All Suffolk University employees (staff, faculty, students etc) are paid every two weeks. The pay period is two weeks long and begins on Monday and ends on Sunday. Pay checks are issued on the Friday following the end of the pay period. If payday falls on a federal holiday when the University is closed, you will receive your paycheck on the preceding workday.

For exact pay dates, download the 2021 payroll schedule [PDF] and 2022 payroll schedule [PDF].

Suffolk University has established deadlines to ensure an employee is accurately paid through the regular bi-weekly payroll processes.

International Students

International students who have claimed tax treaty benefits will receive Form 1042-S instead of Form W-2. Form 1042-S is generated through the Sprintax TDS online tax reporting system and is distributed to all eligible recipients on or before March 15 of each year following the year of payment. Please note that if you exceeded the treaty maximum during the calendar year, you will receive both a Form W-2 which reports your non-treaty earnings, and a Form 1042-S which reports your treaty earnings
