Payroll deductions may only be applied for twice a year. The deadline to apply for the fall is September 5 and for the spring is January 16, 2015. Fall deductions begin September 16, 2014 (September-December) and spring deductions begin February 16, 2015 (February-May). You can sign up in the Card Center in Webb Center.
