Direct Deposit

We highly encourage employees to sign up for direct deposit at Florida SouthWestern State College. It’s not only a more secure way to receive your pay, but it can become imperative during personal emergencies, campus closures or natural disasters.

Employees can sign up for direct deposit by completing the Direct Deposit Authorization Form. Please complete all sections of the form and print to sign. A voided check or statement from your bank that includes your routing number and account number must accompany all new requests. Employees can deposit their pay in up to three (3) separate bank accounts. Once the form has been completed and signed it can be forwarded to our office for processing.

Please note that it does take at least two pay cycles for your direct deposit to become active. We first pre-note your bank information when we receive your request. This allows us to send the banking information electronically without any funds attached to confirm that the information is correct and will be accepted by your banking institution. If there are any problems, we are able to resolve them prior to the transmission of your payroll funds. What does this mean to you? Your first pay check will always be a “live” or paper check that will need to be picked up at your campus Cashier’s office.

If you have made a request to begin direct deposit or have recently updated your direct deposit information, we request that you take a moment to review these changes on the portal. If you find any errors or if your bank account information has changed and you did not authorize these changes, you must notify the payroll department immediately.
