Paychecks & Direct Deposit

Paychecks


By default, your paycheck will come in the form of a paper check.

  • Ungraduate students' paychecks will be delivered to the current address on file in UCPath unless the student has signed up for a direct deposit.
  • Graduate students' paychecks will be delivered to the current address on file in UCPath unless the student has signed up for a direct deposit.

    Signing up for Direct Deposit



    We highly recommend that you sign up for Direct Deposit, which you can do in UCPath. When signed up, Direct Deposit will apply the next pay period.

    Please note:

    Please allow two to five business days after receiving your Blue Card for CruzPay access.

    To sign up for direct deposit as a new user:

    1. Signing up for Direct Deposit in UCPath.
    2. From your UCPath Dashboard, use the menu on the left side of the screen to navigate to the Direct Deposit Add/Update page:
    3. Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > Direct Deposit.
    4. The initial Direct Deposit set-up may take up to two weeks to become effective.

      If you choose not to sign up for Direct Deposit, your paycheck will be mailed to the home/mailing address on file in UCPath. Please review your personal information to ensure that the address listed is correct."
