Setting up direct deposit

Did you know that you can set up direct deposit through Workday in just a few minutes? See this handy quick guide to setting up direct deposit, which will walk you through the simple process step by step.

Imagine – no more worries about missing or losing a paycheck, or standing in line to cash or deposit your check! If you want to enjoy the convenience of having your money available on payday (and sometimes even right before payday), set up direct deposit today.

If you don’t have a bank account – as a USC employee you can open a FREE checking account at the USC Credit Union. Visit any of the USC Credit Union branches and open an account with just a brief visit. For more information on the benefits of USC Credit Union membership, visit their website at

Once you’ve set up direct deposit to your bank account (and you can also have your money sent to more than one account) – it will take a pay cycle or two for the change to take effect. Make sure you enter all your information correctly in Workday – the most common reason for delay is incorrect account numbers.
