Overview of the payroll process for ISAs:

  • ISAs access their online timesheet through the My Cal Poly Portal.
  • ISAs will report hours worked using the punch timesheet format ("In" and "Out"), in the appropriate job record number, everyday throughout the pay period up until the last day to enter time
  • ISA Timekeepers/Approvers will review the time entered by the ISA and approve appropriately online
  • ISAs will pick up their paychecks after 3 p.m. on hourly payday (on or about the 15th of each month) in Student Accounts, Room 211
