Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit of your pay is a safe and secure way to make sure you receive your net pay in a timely manner.  The university sends your pay through Electronic Funds Transfer to your personal checking or savings account which ensures that your money is available to you without you having to make a deposit to your account in person.  Direct deposit of your pay protects you against loss or theft of your pay check.

Direct Deposit is Mandatory

WSSU requires that all employees be paid by direct deposit, unless exempted by the Office of the State Controller.

Those who are unable to secure an account at an eligible financial institution or who believe that enrollment in direct deposit will result in an extreme hardship may fill out an Exemption Request Form. 

Direct Deposit Enrollment Form

New employees must complete a Direct Deposit Enrollment Form and include acceptable documentation of their banking information. 

Acceptable documentation for deposit to a checking or money market account:

  • a PHOTOCOPY of a CHECK with preprinted name and current address
  • a CHECK marked "VOID" with preprinted name and current address
  • an official BANK FORM, certified and stamped by a banking official, which provides the account number and the bank routing number

Acceptable documentation for deposit to a savings account:

  • an official BANK FORM, certified and stamped by a banking official, which provides the account number and the bank routing number
  • a DEPOSIT SLIP with preprinted bank routing and savings account number

Receiving your Direct Deposit Advice on pay day

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

The password structure is as follows: First four letters of your last name (legal name), and last four digits of your social security number with no spaces.

Example:  John Smith with SSN: 123-45-6789 would have a password of SMIT6789.


Changes to banking information

Any changes to bank information will require you to submit a new Direct Deposit Enrollment/Change form.

Please notify the Payroll Department immediately if you have to close your account for any reason. Failure to notify the Payroll Office may cause your pay to be delayed.
