NEW! Improvement of OSR Pre-Audit Approvals: The ConnectCarolina Team has been working closely with the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) to make OSR Pre-Audit approvals more efficient.

NEW! Advance Notice of New Look for Paystub: Beginning in October, your paystub will have a new look that provides more information about earnings and deductions. For more information, see the August 29 memo. A preview of the paystub and a quick reference guide is available online at http://go.unc.edu/paystub/. Communications to all employees via Formal Notice emails and employee paystub notification emails will be sent in advance of the change.
