Instructions for Completing the Student Voucher

Student Vouchers are normally pre-printed and distributed by attendance unit to departmental timekeepers. Timekeepers are responsible for distributing vouchers to students and collecting completed vouchers in a timely manner so payroll cutoffs and deadlines can be met.

If you are unclear about the pay period for Student employees and payroll deadlines, please contact the Student Payroll Technician.

The Excel version of this voucher has been formatted to be completed online.  The automated calculations will only work if the following criteria are met:

  1. Student must work from AM to PM. The formulas do not work if the student works from PM to AM (after midnight).
  2. You must type in AM or PM after you enter the times under the columns labeled "Time IN and OUT" in order for the hours to compute correctly (converting minutes to tenths of an hour.)
    • For example:
      • Time In: 9:00 am
      • Time Out: 2:30 pm
