Pay adjustments

Employees are responsible for verifying the accuracy of their paychecks and taxes each payday. 

Overpayments

Occasionally, employees may be paid more than is due. If an overpayment is discovered, CU will collect funds according to the Employee Services Overpayment Procedure.  

If you discover an overpayment, contact your payroll department immediately to avoid tax implications.

Overpayment Procedure

Correcting Adjustments

At times, employees may have deductions withheld from their paychecks in error. Most often, this occurs when sufficient detail has not been provided to the the university prior to payroll processing (for example: student enrollment data or the U.S. tax residency status of an international employee).

If you believe that deductions from your paycheck may have been made in error, contact hcm_community@cu.edu or, if you are an international employee, contact intltax@cu.edu.
