Payroll to join ConnectionPoint, March 29, 2017

Effective April 4, the university’s payroll department will be transitioning to ConnectionPoint. We are happy to be able to integrate this team, and their expertise with payroll services and support, to our ConnectionPoint administrative service offerings. This transition helps to provide a more holistic, enhanced service for our university community.

This transition has been several months in the making, and has involved extensive collaboration between Financial Services and ConnectionPoint to ensure this change in reporting structure does not impact the ability of our payroll team to provide this essential service offering to our university community.

Beginning April 4, please contact ConnectionPoint for all your payroll related questions and requests, and our payroll team will be happy to assist you. For those who pick up manually printed cheques, these will be available for pick up at ConnectionPoint in Arts Building, room 258 beginning April 4. ConnectionPoint is open from Monday to Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm.

For self-serve information regarding your payroll related questions and to access all payroll related forms, please visit Knowledge Base.
