Employees are strongly encouraged to sign up for Direct Deposit. The process is simple, saves you time, and your paycheck is available more quickly. 

To sign up: 

  1. Ensure you are enrolled with NetIDplus two-factor authentication. This provides added security to prevent fraudulent updates to your direct deposit information.  See the NetID Plus Quick Guide for additional information. 
  2. Complete the Direct Deposit form. This form is located in the Galaxy portal, under Staff Tools > Payroll and Compensation. See the Direct Deposit Quick Guide for additional information. 

Direct deposit updates and changes will be in effect for the pay period following processing. The direct deposit process may take up to two pay periods to be completed, provided the form is submitted ten (10) days prior to the forms deadline (monthly or semi-monthly). For the first pay period, the employee’s check will be available at the Payroll Office, SP2 12.502. For the second pay period, the employee’s check will be directly deposited into the specified bank account.
