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 on behalf of the employee. Employees may use a checking account, savings account, or the pay card offered by the university. Net pay can be deposited in up to ten separate accounts. The accounts may be at the same financial institution or as many as ten different ones.

Employees should complete payment elections in Workday. If payment elections are not verified and approved prior to the employee’s pay date, a paper check will be sent to the employee’s home address of record in Workday. The paper check will be sent no sooner than pay day. 

In the event UAF Cash Management receives an ACH Notification of Change Report for an employee’s account, payroll will notify the employee and collect updated documentation for the account(s).  If new documentation is not received prior to the employee’s next pay date, a pay card will be issued to the employee rather than making a direct deposit.
