Auburn University Direct Deposit Policy

All employees are required to authorize electronic direct deposit of their pay.

What is Direct Deposit?

Direct Deposit is a safe and secure way to have your pay deposited directly into your checking or savings account. Instead of having to take the time to deposit a check yourself, Auburn University will electronically transfer your pay into your account.

Why Use Direct Deposit?

Direct deposit offers many advantages over checks, including:

  • Security: With direct deposit, you don't have to worry about lost, stolen or misplaced checks.

  • Reliability: You do not have to wait for your department to pick up and issue your checks. You can have peace of mind knowing your money will be in your account on time.

  • Flexibility: If you decide to switch accounts or change financial institutions, it's easy to change your direct deposit arrangements. Simply follow the instructions shown below.
