Fayetteville Policies and Procedures  323.0

Direct Deposit of Pay

It is the practice of the Fayetteville campus of the University of Arkansas to deposit employee pay directly to a financial institution that receives electronic transfers. Employees may use a checking account, savings account, or the pay card offered by the university. Net pay can be deposited in up to six separate accounts. The accounts can be at the same financial institution or as many as six different ones.

Employees should complete an electronic payment authorization form located on the Human Resources website, choosing the type of account(s) they wish to use, and specifying the financial institution(s) and the account(s) to which they want their pay deposited.

If no electronic payment authorization is received for payroll, checks will be mailed by U.S. Mail to the employee’s permanent address of record in BASIS. The paper check will be mailed no sooner than pay day. 

No checks will be sent to departments for distribution to employees.
