Student employees are paid on a biweekly basis. Frog Time is used to report hours worked and is required to generate a paycheck. Talk with supervisors for deadlines for approval of your Frog Time hours.
Direct Deposit is Mandatory
*Enroll or maintain your direct deposit at Employee Self Service, which is also available on my.tcu.edu under the payroll tile. Verify if you have received a paycheck or if your check was direct deposited at my.tcu.edu.
At the bottom of the online paycheck is Net Pay Distribution. It will note whether you were issued a check or if it was direct deposited.
