Direct Deposit or Pay Card

Central Michigan University offers employees two convenient compensation methods: direct deposit to your bank account or via a rapid! PayCard® MasterCard.

Direct deposit

Have your paycheck sent directly to the checking or savings account of your choice at any financial institution in the United States. It is the safest, most confidential way to have electronic access to your pay. You are able to send your money to more than one financial institution and/or account at the same institution.
