Direct Deposit Setup

We strongly encourage student employees to set up direct deposit as a form of payment. Benefits of signing up for direct deposit:

  • Quick - Your money is electronically transferred to your account and is available on the date expected. With Direct Deposit your money is ready to use on payday.
  • Safe - Direct Deposit puts money in your account on time, every time. There is nothing to get lost or delayed in the mail.
  • Easy - Easy to set up
  • Secure - Worries about lost, stolen or misplaced checks are virtually eliminated. Your pay is deposited even if you're on vacation, sick or out of town.
  • Help the Environment - As a bonus, you'll be a partner in helping to reduce the negative impact on the planet.
