Without direct deposit information payments such as salary, honorariums, or graduate scholarships are issued in the form of a cheque held for pickup at Human Resource Services. Ensure new employees and students who are receiving their first payments are paid via direct deposit by submitting an Electronic Banking/Direct Deposit Form along with a Pay Action Form before the monthly or bi-monthly cutoff.
