All student employees with direct deposit can view and print their pay stub online via AC Data. Amherst is "going green" as of 12/5/14; if you have direct deposit, the College will discontinue your paper pay stub. Follow these simple instructions to view your pay stub online.

The small number of student employees who currently receive their compensation by printed check will continue to receive paper pay stubs.

Student 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 student employee’s bank account.

Any questions, please call the payroll office at 542-2814.
