Payroll Checks

Bi-Weekly Paychecks

Most students are paid on a bi-weekly schedule. Direct Deposit is mandatory but it may take up to 2 weeks for paperwork to be processed so your first check may be issued in paper form. Paper checks can be picked up at the Office of Student Employment after 12:00pm on the day paychecks are issued.  A photo ID is required.

If you need a copy of your paystub, you can access it through your MaineStreet account. Click here for instructions on how to access your paycheck information on MaineStreet.

If you have any questions about your paycheck after you have submitted your initial paperwork, please contact the Office of Student Employment at 207.581.1349.


Monthly Paychecks

Students who are on an assistantship will receive a monthly stipend. The stipend will be deposited into the student’s account (as indicated on the Direct Deposit form) on the last business day of each month.


IMPORTANT NOTE: You will not get paid for time worked until you have filled out the necessary paperwork and it has been processed by both the Office of Student Employment and the Payroll Office. Also, the Payroll Office can only speak with the student about their paychecks/payroll. Parents and/or spouses will not be given any information about a student’s payroll status.
