Process for Applying for Direct Deposit and Viewing Student Pay Stubs!

In order to apply for direct deposit, a student must have access to ESS (Employee Self-Service).   This access becomes available to a student employee once the student’s record has been established in SAP (University payroll system).  This will typically be on the Thursday after the student has been hired into the Student Payroll system.   Please note that during peak hiring time, September and January, access may not be available until Friday after the student has been hired into the Student Payroll System.

A student is required to have a social security number in order to apply for direct deposit.

When you click on “Direct Deposit Authorization” on the Student Link, you will be directed to the BUWorks Central Portal.  (Note: Google Chrome and Safari are not supported). Once there, you will need to click on the “Employee Self-Service” tab and then click on “Benefits and Pay.” Under the “Pay” heading, you will click on the Direct Deposit option and fill in and submit your information there.  Here is a quick guide which will walk you through the process step-by-step.
