Notification of Direct Deposit of Pay

Employees who are receiving their pay via direct deposit will receive an email from the Payroll Office in their university email account on pay day.  A copy of the employee's Direct Deposit Advice will be attached to the email.  The attachment is a password protected, encrypted PDF document. Instructions for the structure of the password are in the email.  

If an employee no longer has an active university email account, a paper copy of the Direct Deposit Advice will be mailed to them. 

Employees should check with their individual bank to determine the specific time their money will be posted to their individual checking or savings account.  The ACH files sent by Payroll have a specific effective date for each pay cycle, however, each bank individually determines the time that monies post to accounts.

Paper Checks

In the event that either a permanent employee, adjunct faculty member, or a temporary employee is receiving a paper check, the paper check will be mailed to the employee's home address on pay day.  If the employee prefers to pick up their pay check, arrangements must be made with the Payroll Office. 

Paper checks for student employees are available for pick-up on pay day in the Accounts Payable office in 106 Phillips Hall provided that the employee presents a valid photo ID.
