Frequently Asked Questions:
What if I don't have my ID card with me? We can hold your order until you can return with your ID card. We cannot process an order without a copy of your ID card.
Can I purchase more than one item at a time? Yes, but you cannot exceed the established credit limits without manager authorization.
What if I want to spend more than the established credit limits and the person I'm working with cannot contact the appropriate manager? We will request approval for your order and call you once we have heard back on the request.
What if I leave the University and still owe money? If the amount owed is not satisfied/paid through payroll, you will have 30 days to remit full payment before it is sent to collections. If a payment plan is set up you will be charged a $10.00 per month or 1.5% interest rate each month (whatever is higher). The Campus Store reserves the right to waive this fee.
Can I put a deposit on my purchase, and pay the balance through payroll deductions? Yes. On the forms, we will list the amount paid, and then list, "balance of $___ to be paid through payroll deduction."
What will I see on my paycheck? You will see a deduction code and an abbreviated description such as STR067 - Campus Store. The total on your paystub is cumulative for the year; if you have multiple payroll deductions, the total on your paystub will reflect total payroll deductions for the year.
Can I extend the number of pay periods that I pay for my purchase? No. We need to stay within the established guidelines of 3, 6, 8, 10, or 12 deduction periods.
When will the first payroll deductions happen? The deduction will start on the paycheck for the pay period the payroll deduction was purchased. (1st through 15th - paycheck dated the 22nd; 16th through the EOM - paycheck dated the 7th)
