Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is a safe and convenient way to have your earnings automatically deposited into your checking or savings account. This authorizes the university to deposit your paycheck directly into your bank account. If you already have direct deposit from working at BU previously, you do not need to resubmit.

Eligible students may enroll by selecting Direct Deposit Authorization on the Student Link Work tab. You will need your bank’s routing number and your bank account number.  Click here for written step-by-step instructions.
