Direct Deposit

Direct Deposit is a safe and convenient way to have your earnings automatically deposited into your checking or savings account.

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.

If you receive an error message when you are trying to access the Direct Deposit function, you should go to one of the IS&T Help Desks located throughout campus. You should provide your BU ID card and ask them to raise your system security level so that you can access the Employee Self-Service options.
