1.6 - Payroll Information

Welcome to Payroll in BlueSky! Please review your address, direct deposit information and W-4 information converted from PeopleSoft to the new BlueSky system. Role-specific training toolkits for BlueSky are available. Please also visit for information and updates.

  • Time Reporters: Please enter all hours for the December 28 — January 10 pay period by noon on Sunday, January 10
    • If you are an hourly employee who enters hours on a time card, please enter the quantity of hours on your time card rather than start and end times.
    • Submit your time card when all hours for the pay period have been entered. When your time card is submitted, your manager will receive a notification that your time card is pending approval. Note: Webclock employees will have time cards automatically submitted at the end of the pay period.
    • If possible, submit your completed time card earlier than the deadline to allow sufficient time for approval.
    • Employee W-4 elections from PeopleSoft transferred over to BlueSky. In BlueSky, employees will automatically be taxed, for state purposes, based on their home address on file with the university. If a new W-4 is appropriate, you may submit a new state W-4 by Friday, January 8.
    • All absences such as floating holiday, vacation, and sick time must be reported in the Absence module.
  • Time Approvers: Please approve all hours for the December 28 — January 10 pay period by noon on Sunday, January 10.

    • To view time cards in other statuses or for delegated time approval access, remove all filters from the top of the screen.
    • To edit an existing time card, click in to that employee’s time card, change the View By to Reported Time (rather than Calculated Time) and click the pencil icon. Remember to save, submit, and approve again.
    • Employee time cards will be approved by the employee’s Line Manager. The time approver responsibility can be delegated to a different employee. If you delegated time approval in PeopleSoft, you should re-delegate in BlueSky. By delegating your time approval access in BlueSky, you relinquish capability to approval time cards to the delegate. Please use the BlueSky Help tool by searching for “delegate time” to choose Timecard and Absence in order to delegate time approval.
  • If you have unreported time from December 27th or prior, please work with your manager to contact with a list of hours worked but not reported and paid in PeopleSoft. Please include your employee ID number and job/position.
  • If you have unreported absences from December 27th or prior (such as vacation or sick leave), please contact with a list of hours worked
