Auditing Your Paycheck: Full-Time Faculty

How do I locate my paystub?

In order to audit your paycheck, you first need to know how to find your paystubs in ctcLink.  We’ll tell you how to do that here.  A list of your paystubs can be found using the following steps.

  1. Login to ctcLink.
  2. Select HCM Self-Service.

  3. Select Payroll.

  4. Select Paychecks.


When you are in the Paychecks section of ctcLink, you can click on the funnel to select a date and see your older paychecks.  The first paycheck recorded in ctcLink is for 2/25/2021, so you won’t be able to view paychecks earlier than that.  We recommend downloading all of your paystubs as PDFs to ensure that all of that information is available to you.

Once you have access to your paystubs, you need to compare your paystub to your contract to look for any discrepancies.

How do I find my contract?

Full-time faculty will receive their contract in an email from someone in the office of the VP of Instruction.  As of this writing, this is Shannon Bath.  The contracts for the 2021-22 academic year were sent around May 17, 2021 from  We recommend downloading each contract you receive to make sure you have previous contract information at your disposal.

How can I compare my contract to my paychecks?

You can use your compensation history to compare your paychecks to your contract.  You can find your compensation history by:

  1. Login to ctcLink.
  2. Click HCM Self-Service.
  3. Click Payroll.
  4. Click on Compensation History.

The compensation history will show how much you were paid annually and if there were any raises in pay.

You can find a link to the current salary scale for full-time faculty here.

How much pay should appear in my paystub?

Answering this depends on how you chose to receive your pay.  You can either receive your pay in 19 paychecks, or in 24 paychecks with the last 5 paychecks given to you all at once in a balloon payment on Jun 25.  Divide the amount in your annual contract by 19 or 24 (depending on the option you chose).  This should be the amount that appears in every paycheck.

You may also see listings for stipends or special assignment pay.  You need to keep track of what you should be paid for these activities and confirm that the payment is received.


If you have any other questions about your earnings, the collective bargaining agreement is a good place to start.  You may also contact the president of your union at
