Direct Deposit of Your Pay Check To Your Checking Account

Student employees of Western State Colorado University are able to signup for direct deposit. This program will allow students to have their monthly payroll check directly deposited to their checking account. Students who are signed up for direct deposit will not need to come to the Cashier's window each month to pick up a payroll check.

Before you signup for direct deposit, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I know what direct deposit is? If you have had direct deposit before and it has worked well for you, then direct deposit may be right for you. If you have never had direct deposit before and are unsure what it means to have your pay directly deposited to your account, then direct deposit may not be right for you.
  • Do I have a long-term banking relationship with a bank I trust and want to maintain during my years as a student at Western? If you have had a checking account with a bank you trust for a few years, direct deposit may be right for you. If you have just opened a checking account with a bank, you may want to wait to sign up for direct deposit until you are sure the bank you have chosen is right for you.
  • Will I be working a lot of hours to pay bills or will I be working a few hours for pocket money? If you are planning to work as many hours as you can to pay bills such as rent, electrical, and telephone, then direct deposit may be right for you. If you are just working a few hours to have money in your pocket, then direct deposit may not be right for you.

If you feel that direct deposit is right for you, complete the Direct Deposit Authorization form by the first working day of the month you would like direct deposits to begin. If you turn in the authorization form after the first, your direct deposits will begin the following month.

All student employees can access their pay stub on line one or two days before the scheduled pay day. This is available to all students through your WOL account. Instructions can be found by clicking on the link below.
