When am I going to get paid?

All employees are paid on a bi-weekly payroll schedule.


Exempt staff must report leave time (time not worked due to vacation, holiday, sick, etc.) via Banner Web Time Entry Leave Report.

Nonexempt employees must report their time via Banner Web Time Entry Timesheet.

Faculty must report any absences of more than five consecutive days for record-keeping required by the Provost Office and Human Resources.

What are my benefits?

ACU offers health insurance, prescription insurance, dental, vision, life insurance, disability insurance, and non-reimbursed medical flex and dependent care flex. Vacation, sick and holiday leave are also included in your benefits.

What happens if I get injured at work?

If you are injured at work, you or your supervisor must complete an accident report within 24 hours of the injury. If the injury is not reported in a timely manner, it could cause complications with the worker’s compensation insurance.
