Employee Reimbursements Update

Beginning April 1, all employee expense reimbursements will be made as Automated Clearing House (ACH) payments (electronic funds transfer). The college will no longer issue paper checks for these transactions. The use of an ACH payment process will provide efficiency and cost savings to the college.

If you are currently using direct deposit for your paycheck, the Controller’s Office will use your primary payroll account information to set up your ACH payment account.  If you are not using direct deposit for your paycheck, you will need to provide your banking information prior to requesting an expense reimbursement.  Expense reimbursements will be processed on Tuesdays with the funds available at your bank on Fridays. Email notifications will be sent when reimbursements have been processed.

If you have any questions, please contact JoAnn Feary in the Controller’s Office at Ext. 8528.
