Payroll & Hire

Please read carefully as there are two different payment situations:

If you will be teaching more than one course this year you will be added to payroll and receive an automatic deposit payment.

Please complete these forms. I will also have them here in the office if that is more convenient.

If you are only teaching one course for the whole year, you will be paid through Accounting. In this case, please send us a completed W9 Form. The address which you include on this form is where your check will be sent.

How to be paid

At the end of the month of your course, please send an invoice to dof@miu.edu
Here is an Invoice Template.

Invoices are due the last day of the month for timely pay. If you taught in February, we need your invoice no later than Feb 28th and you will be paid March 15th. If it is turned in later than the last day of the month your payment will be made in the next billing cycle, April 15th.
