  • Paper Payroll Earnings Statements Being Discontinued

    READ MORE

    To support EIU's green campus initiative, the university will no longer issue paper earnings statements for each direct deposit payroll, effective May 31. The change is being made, in part,  to:

    • Reduce identity theft
    • Keep salary information safer and private
    • Provides a more rapid way to review salary information and identify errors that can be corrected before payday
    • Promote environmentally friendly practices
    • Redirect costs (paper, envelopes, equipment and labor) to more appropriate areas of need


    Your earnings information will be available each pay period through PAWS, EIU’s self-service portal.  Earnings information is typically available as soon as payroll has been processed for the pay period. This is typically 3 to 5 days before the normal pay date. If you have never accessed your paystub via PAWS, please use this notification period to familiarize yourself with the system.

    To view your earnings information (paystub) on-line, access PAWS from the EIU homepage or:

    • Click on this link: https://bannerssb.eiu.edu/pls/PROD/twbkwbis.P_WWWLogin, then
      ** Sign-in to PAWS using your EIU NetID and password (If you do not know your NetID and password, please contact the HELP desk at 581-4357)
      ** Select the EMPLOYEE tab
      **Select PAY STUB (The system will default to the current calendar year)
      ** Select DISPLAY
      **Select the payroll period you wish to view

    If you wish to print the statement, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the PRINTER FRIENDLY radio button. This will give you a printable format. Please note, your SSN is not displayed and will not be printed.

    If you have any comments or questions regarding this process change, please e-mail Human Resources at humanres@eiu.edu or contact the Payroll Office at (217) 581-5510.

  • EIU Employee 2019 Summer Hours Update

    READ MORE

    For several years, Eastern Illinois University has used a 4.5-day summer workweek for many areas on campus to promote energy efficiency and save approximately $500,000 in utility costs. For this summer, the administration again asks employees, whose work assignments allow, to compress their normal five-day workweek into a 4.5-day workweek.

    Campus-wide summer office hours will be in effect from Monday, May 6, through Friday, August 9, excluding the holiday weeks of Tuesday, May 28, through Friday, May 31, and Monday, July 1, through Friday, July 5. When summer office hours are in effect, all offices must be open Monday through Thursday between 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. and on Friday from 8 a.m. until noon. Due to ongoing operational needs, offices including, but not limited to, the President's Office, Admissions, University Police, Booth Library and the Renewable Energy Center, will keep regular business hours and remain open on Friday afternoons.

    Holidays will be observed on Monday, May 27, for Memorial Day and Thursday, July 4, for Independence Day. For the holiday weeks of May 28-May 31 and July 1-5 (excluding the holiday), all offices must be open for regular business hours from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

    Classes scheduled to meet on Friday afternoons will be relocated to buildings where the air conditioning will remain on. Employees are to work with supervisors to ensure that a 37.5-hour workweek is accomplished. Each office is to change voice mail, signs and other public communication to reflect its summer hours. Regular business hours will resume on Monday, Aug. 12. Questions may be directed to the Human Resources office.

  • Students -- Do You Need Insurance This Summer?

    READ MORE

    Do you need Student Insurance coverage for Summer?

    Student Insurance is available for the Summer 2019 term. The coverage effective dates are 5/6/19-8/11/19. The cost for the coverage is $87.45.

    Spring Term students covered under the Plan, who desire Summer coverage and do not intend to enroll for a minimum of 9 on-campus hours in the Summer Term, may obtain coverage by submitting the Summer 2019 Extension of Coverage Form prior to 5/06/19.

    Students who enroll for 5 or more hours for the Summer Term may obtain coverage by submitting the Summer 2019 Part Time Enrollment Form prior to 5/15/19. Coverage is effective upon receipt of the enrollment form.

    Student Insurance provides the student worldwide protection 24 hours a day.  The Plan has a $100 deductible per diagnosis and pays up to 70% of eligible expenses for physician and hospital expenses, lab and x-ray, surgery, ambulance transport, physical therapy, maternity expenses, mental health and substance abuse issues. The Student Insurance Plan also reduces copays for prescription medications at the Health Service Pharmacy.  

    Unlike an HMO or PPO, the Plan does not have a network, giving students a choice in their care and provides coverage for treatment the student receives while they are at home, at school, and wherever they may travel.  

    Student Insurance is an economical way to reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket expenses when family health plans do not cover 100% of medical costs because of deductibles, co-payment amounts, limitations on specific benefits, and out-of-network penalties.  The Student Insurance Plan complements the family health plan.  Most students find it beneficial to carry both, particularly if the family plan has a deductible and/or coinsurance.

    For more information visit the Student Insurance website or call the office at (217) 581-5290.

    READ MORE

    Quantitative reasoning (QR) is a very important and often overlooked undergraduate university learning goal at EIU.  In academic year 2018 nearly half of the departmental assessment plans at EIU did not include a QR learning goal.  In addition, national assessment data suggests that EIU freshmen and seniors register lower on QR skills than do their peers at other universities.  This workshop is designed to encourage more departments to focus on the quantitative reasoning learning goal and to incorporate it in their classes.  We will highlight the resources that are available to faculty and focus on best practices for instruction in teaching QR skills. This workshop will include examples of lesson plans, in-class assignments, and participation in a group activity.
