All student employees are strongly encouraged to sign up for direct deposit. Instead of receiving a weekly paper check in the mail, earnings are deposited in your bank account on Friday mornings.
No bank account? No problem! All undergraduates are eligible to join the Harvard University Employees Credit Union, a not-for-profit financial institution that exclusively serves the Harvard community.
More questions about setting up direct deposit, or how payment works in general? Harvard's Student Employment Office website is a great resource for all questions relating to student employement!
