Employees and students hired as employees may complete a form online at Duke@Work. The form is located under the My Info tab in the My Pay section of the page. Please note that Foreign National employees who do not have a valid US Social Security Number are not eligible for direct deposit, and students paid on the non-compensatory payroll must update bank account information in the Duke Student Hub.
The system will auto-populate a "Valid From" date. Direct deposit will be effective for any payroll processed after that date.
All cancellations of direct deposit must be submitted on a Direct Deposit Authorization form. Please note that this form cannot be emailed or faxed but can be uploaded to the Payroll Strongbox. Original signatures are required.
Section II of the Direct Deposit Authorization Form has an option to cancel your Direct Deposit. You need only fill out Sections I, II, and IV for Corporate Payroll Services to process your request.
Employees must enter their new banking information at Duke@Work or students receiving non-compensatory payments must submit new account information via the Duke Student Hub. Employees and students are encouraged to wait to close the old account until their first payment is deposited in the new account. Closing your old account before the change has taken place may delay the receipt of payment.
In this situation, funds were likely sent to the closed account. If the new account is with the same financial institution as the closed account, contact the financial institution, as they may be willing to transfer funds into the new account. If a funds transfer is not possible, the funds will be returned to Duke by the financial institution. Once funds are returned, Corporate Payroll Services will issue an off-cycle payment on the Friday of the week after receipt of funds. To avoid a delay in payment due to a direct deposit change, it is recommended that the old account remain open until the first deposit is received in the new account. If you have additional questions, contact Corporate Payroll Services at 919-684-2642.
As long as you have not made changes to your direct deposit account, funds have been sent to your bank. Call your bank and ask to speak with someone in the "ACH" department. They will be able to tell you if there were any problems in depositing your money into your account. If you did make a change or cancel your direct deposit, contact your department payroll representative.
Students and Duke Temporary Services employees can be placed in over-allocated positions. People in over-allocated positions can have the same SAP position number as another employee. Keep in mind that employees in the same position must have the same approvers when using the electronic time reporting system.
The default cost center will be a departmental cost center. Grant codes cannot be used as the default code.

These hours will show only for Biweekly employees.
The SAP pay period for employees paid biweekly will be Period 17 of the 1-26 periods, and the pay period for employees paid monthly will be Period 8 of the 1-12 periods. You may reference the Duke University payroll schedule posted on the Corporate Payroll Website or the individual payroll schedule cards to determine the SAP pay period.
