The University of Alberta requires all individuals receiving payment in the form of salary, wages, stipends, allowance, graduate scholarships, fellowships and honorariums to be enrolled in direct deposit as outlined in the Payment by Electronic Banking/Direct Deposit Procedure.
Employees can access their direct deposit information using the Employees tab in Bear Tracks. However, new employees and students who have not received payments before will not have access to the Employees tab until a Pay Action Form has been processed.
Therefore we ask that you submit an Electronic Banking/Direct Deposit form along with the Pay Action Form to ensure these individuals receive their first payments as a direct deposit. The Electronic Banking/Direct Deposit form can be found under Pay Administration in the HRS Forms Cabinet.
