Getting Paid

In order to get paid for any position, an I9, W4 and direct deposit form must be filled out in the Human Resources office (Ad Building, Room 213), on the first day of employment.

To benefit our employees, Direct Deposit is ACU’s preferred method of payroll delivery. You can easily set up or change your Direct Deposit information by following these instructions.

For more specific pay dates, please view our payroll calendars.
