Business Office

The Texas Lutheran University Business Office, located in the O.G. Beck College Center, manages student accounts, accepts payment for tuition and other fees, and handles payroll.

Paying Tuition and Fees

Assess tuition and fees and decide which payment option is right for you. Learn More.

Cashier Window 

Manage direct deposit of funds, turn in your timesheet and employment forms, and pick up your paycheck.

The TLU cashier windows are open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. You may cash personal checks up to $50 per day in the Business Office. Checks made payable to a third party cannot be cashed by TLU.

Payday is the last administrative working day of each month. Forms may be obtained in either the Office of Human Resources or the Business Office to permit direct deposit of funds. Individuals receiving their pay via direct deposit will receive their check stub through campus mail. Individuals receiving their pay via check may pick up the check at the cashier windows after 8:30 a.m. on payday. If you would like someone to pick up the check for you or if you would like the check mailed, you may provide written authorization in order to release the check.

Any payroll changes (tax filing status, deduction changes, etc.) must be received in the Payroll Office by the 20th of the month in order for them to be reflected on the end of the month check.

Employment Requirements

All students must complete the employment forms W-4 and I-9 prior to beginning work. Supervisors may contact the Payroll Office at ext. 8019 to confirm if a student has completed employment forms on file. A Payroll Authorization Form must be signed by the student and supervisor for each job a student holds. 

Time Sheet Requirements

Time sheets must be received by the Business Office by 12 p.m. on the time sheet due date. Late time sheets will not be processed until the next pay cycle. Time sheets that are not signed or are inaccurate and/or incomplete will not be processed until corrections are made. A time sheet must be submitted for each pay cycle worked. Time sheets must be signed by both the student and supervisor.
