- The University of South Florida pays on a bi-weekly payroll cycle. Each pay period begins on Friday and ends two weeks later on Thursday. You will be paid for that pay period one week later on Friday.
- Section 110.113 of the Florida Statutes requires, all employees, except undergraduate work study students, are required to enroll in direct deposit as a condition of employment.
- Employees enrolled in Direct Deposit do not receive a printed paycheck, or a printed itemized pay statement. You may access your itemized payment statement via Gems Self Service. Step by step instructions are provided for accessing Gems Self Service. Employees without access to a computer may ask their supervisor to print it for them or they may submit a Pay Advice Request form to Payroll.
