Self-Service Banking Information is now available to all Amherst employees, including student employees, via AC Data.  New online functionality allows employees to easily enter and change direct deposit and bank account information themselves.  

Additions or changes to direct deposit bank account information may take up to two pay cycles to become effective.  Any changes to bank account information must be verified first with your bank.  The verification process is performed within the College’s payroll system – there is no additional action needed by the employee at this point of the process unless your bank is unable to verify the account information.  Once the account information has been verified, the changes will be included in the next payroll run.

REMINDER - all employees can view and print their pay stub online via AC Data. Amherst is encouraging employees to "go green" by choosing not to receive a paper pay stub. If you have direct deposit and would like to discontinue your paper pay stub, simply log on to AC Data and click "Do Not Print My Pay Advice" or contact the payroll office.

Casual employees are now eligible for AC Data accounts.  This will allow them to access self-service banking information.  Please encourage casuals to also discontinue their paper pay stub. For more information see the Feb 24th announcement from HR.

Employees are encouraged to use direct deposit and online pay stubs as they are more secure and are accessible 24 hours, 7 days a week (with internet access). Pay stub information is available online one day ahead of the funds being deposited in the employee’s bank account. The long term goal is to convert all full-time employees to direct deposit and online pay stubs.

 Any questions, please call the payroll office at 542-2813.
