New Payroll Coordinators

At NC State, departmental payroll coordinators serve as liaisons between their department’s employees and the University Controller’s Office.

If you’re new to the university — or new to the role of payroll coordinator — we can help you get up to speed. Throughout the year, we offer a course designed for payroll coordinators, supervisors and anyone else who deals with payroll issues.

Some of their responsibilities of payroll coordinators include:

  • Helping staff access Employee Self-Service through MyPack Portal — or retrieving information for staff without computer access.
  • Safeguarding and distributing printed pay advices and W-2 forms.
  • Sharing important payroll information from memoranda and HR Connections with the employees in their department.

Many payroll coordinators also serve as their department’s representative to University Human Resources. You may be tasked with entering information such as job actions, personal data, time records and additional pay.
