Cal Employee Connect - Services for CSU Employees!

As a California State University (CSU) employee, your pay warrant/direct deposit advice and annual W-2 are issued by the State Controller’s Office (SCO). Previously, these hard copy documents have been the only way to access a record of your earnings from the SCO Payroll System.

Employees now have the opportunity to register with Cal Employee Connect (CEC), a tool that provides our employees with instant access to their wages and earnings information, creating opportunities for self-service  to view, print, and electronically save their own W-2s, direct deposit earning statements, and more.
