Direct Deposit

New WMU Employees:

New employees may add their direct deposit information directly through Employee Self Service. For assistance with direct deposit, please call (269) 387-2935 or email payroll-dept@wmich.edu. All new employees are required to enroll in Direct Deposit or be issued a Pay Card.   
Please see the tutorial below for step by step instructions on submitting your banking information.
  • In order to set up your direct deposit as a new employee you will need to wait 24-48 hours after your hire date before the Employee Self-Service portal is available.
  • You may select the direct deposit or PNC pay card option
  • Your first check is often a paper check, unless direct deposit information is entered at least 10 business days before the paycheck date. You will be notified by the payroll office via your Western Michigan University email with instructions to pick up or to have your check mailed to you.
  • Paycheck stubs are available to you on the Employee Self Service payroll portal by selecting Paychecks. New paycheck stubs are posted two days prior to the pay date.

Current WMU Employees:

Existing employees may add/edit their direct deposit information directly through Employee Self Service.

If you currently have direct deposit information submitted and wish to change to the PNC pay card, please contact the payroll office at (269) 387-2935 or email payroll-dept@wmich.edu for assistance.

PNC PayCard Information:
