To comply with NACHA rules, please advise the University Payroll Office if you receive your pay via direct deposit at a U.S. bank and intend to transfer the entire payment amount to a bank in another country.
Employees who desire to update their direct deposit via Employee Self Service must be on an Illinois State Network, or using a VPN which can be obtained via the IT Helpdesk at (309)438-4357.
The routing number is the nine-digit number in the bottom left corner of your check. A routing number NEVER begins with “5.” DO NOT copy the numbers from a deposit slip. Usually, these are not valid.
*If you are not sure what the routing number is, contact your bank.
The account number is a series of numbers found at the bottom of your check following the routing number. Do not enter your debit card number – this is not your account number.
*If you are not sure what the account number is, contact your bank.
Direct Deposit enrollment for payroll purposes is independent of Student Accounts and Business Office. To receive Student Accounts and Business Office payments via direct deposit, please visit the sites below.
