COVID-19 & Payroll


Students who are currently on the Cooper Union payroll need to confirm that their mailing address currently on file is correct. If it is not current complete and update the address change form either by going into the ADP Portal and updating your information at, or by completing the form attached to this email and emailing it back to the payroll office at . We would like to ensure that all addresses are updated so that students receive their pay checks during the building closure.

Administrative Staff

All supervisor approved timesheets and pay requests normally submitted via interoffice mail must now be submitted via email. Payroll has setup a shared excel file. This will act as a secondary backup to ensure all payments are processed in a timely manner.


Payroll will continue to be processed following the payroll schedule that was sent in January. If you do not have a copy of the payroll schedule, I have attached it to this email.

Please note staff will continue to record their time into the ADP portal. Managers/Supervisors will continue to approve all hours by the pay period due date. The student portal will continue to remain active.

Individual checks will be mailed directly to you from the ADP Processing Center. For those employees who wish to switch to direct deposit please complete the direct deposit form attached to this email. Please be sure that that the address on file is up to date and current by logging into the ADP portal, going to “myself > my information > profile.” If you do not have access to ADP, please contact the payroll office via email at to obtain a personal registration code. If you wish to change your address and cannot get into the ADP portal, an address change form is attached to this email. Please send the form back to payroll at

Please feel free to contact the payroll office via email with any questions or concerns regarding your Cooper Union payroll services.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
