University Closure

University Closure: Most University of Arizona departments close or reduce operations between Christmas and New Year’s Day. Three paid holidays fall within this period: Christmas Eve (floating holiday), Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Three or four days, depending on the calendar, are mandatory paid Closure leave.


Employees will receive their paychecks on Fridays on a biweekly basis in one of three forms:

  1. State Warrant: Checks issued on the State of Arizona's bank account.
  2. Direct Deposit: Payment issued by employee's selection of direct deposit.
  3. Off-Cycle Check: Checks and direct deposits issued on the University of Arizona bank account.

All three payment devices provide information regarding the employee's current and year-to-date gross pay, deductions, employee reimbursements, and net pay.

Paychecks include earnings for the pay period ending the Sunday immediately preceding a payday.

Physical checks are distributed to employees’ home departments on Friday of pay week. Employees who have requested direct deposit of earnings will receive an electronic format of the advice of direct deposit through UAccess Employee Self Service.
