Payroll is a vital process that affects every employee in every organization. The Payroll Specialist program will prepare M State students to perform payroll duties including calculations, reporting, employee communications, and support for their employers.
M State's Payroll Specialist program will provide you with the training to perform routine calculating, journalizing, posting and verifying duties to maintain accounting records and to prepare payroll reports and returns and employee records. The program includes instruction in both manual and computerized accounting concepts.
The 33-credit program is offered on our Detroit Lakes and Moorhead campuses and through eCampus.
This program is eligible for the MnSCU Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program. Participating students will have their tuition and fees paid after Federal Pell and Minnesota State grants have been applied to their accounts.
Grant recipients must be Minnesota residents and meet income guidelines. They also must graduate from a Minnesota high school, complete an ABE program or pass a GED test.
There is no separate application for this grant. Interested students apply by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or, for undocumented students, the Minnesota Dream Act Application. Funding is limited, so submit the FAFSA as early as possible since applicants will be ranked by their application date.
