Salary advances are only available in extreme emergencies. The amount of the advance cannot exceed 75% of earned but unpaid wages as of the date of the salary advance. Salary advances are requested on the Salary Advance Request Form, which is available in the Office of Human Resources. The employee's supervisor and an Administrative Officer must approve the advance. Repayment through payroll deduction must be made in total in the next available pay period. Due to the emergency nature of salary advances, Payroll will, when possible, provide a check within two working business days of the receipt of the Salary Advance Request.
