Payroll Corrections Policy

Dartmouth College is dedicated to ensuring the correct and timely payment of employee wages and all applicable tax withholding.  Although we strive to pay our employees on time and correctly, there are circumstances when payroll corrections are necessary.  These corrections are processed using off cycle checks (i.e., quick pays). 

Payroll corrections (i.e., quick pays) will be processed using the following schedule:


Request Received by

Payroll Office

Check Dated

Check Mailed or Available for Pick Up

Wednesday, 2pm


Friday, 11am

Thursday, 2pm


Monday, 11am

 Friday, 2pm



Tuesday, 11am










Dartmouth College is identified by the IRS as a next day federal depositor due to the amount of payroll taxes withheld.  In order to be in compliance with our next day depositor status, off-cycle payroll correction checks will be dated and available for distribution according to the above schedule.
