Getting Paid at Vanderbilt
Students employed by Vanderbilt University (using either FWS award or Institutional funds) are paid on the University Biweekly A cycle (UBA) or University Monthly 1 pay cycle (UM1). All UBA pay cycles require students to complete the e-Timesheet (electronic) or a Brown-Back timesheet every two weeks. Your supervisor will direct you as to their procedure for processing your timesheet.
Students employed by the Vanderbilt Medical Center (using either FWS award or Institutional funds) are paid on the Medical Biweekly B cycle (MBB) or Medical Monthly 1 pay cycle (MM1). All MBB pay cycles require students to complete the e-Timesheet (electronic) or a Green-Back timesheet every two weeks.
Timesheets must be submitted to supervisors by the established deadline for proper signature and to allow adequate time to reach the designated department for processing. Check with your supervisor to verify the pay cycle you should be following.
Payroll disbursements to student employees may be made as follows:
- A direct deposit to the employee’s financial institutional. This method is recommended. Students may set up direct deposit by logging onto C2HR.
- A deposit to the Vanderbilt Paycard.
- A "live" check. You will need to verify with your supervisor where to pick the check up or have it mailed to your "home" address.
