Direct deposit is a condition of employment at Colorado State University, detailed in State Fiscal Rule 9-2, p.2, requiring all employees to receive their pay via direct deposit to the bank or financial institution (located within the US) of their choice. Under limited circumstances, the HR Payroll Manager may authorize exemptions to mandatory direct deposit.

Verify your first deposit after submission of information before drawing against your account. CSU cannot assume any fiscal liability for charges assessed against the employee due to erroneous bank account numbers, miscommunication, etc.

We are unable to send direct deposit funds to more than one account. For assistance with moving funds between accounts please contact your personal bank.
