Direct Deposit

You must have a valid bank account and set up direct deposit in Workday for your paycheck. All students are paid electronically via direct deposit for all employment.

How to Get Paid

Do not work before you've been officially hired online. Your supervisor is responsible for hiring you before scheduling you. Once you've been hired a timesheet will become available to you for that position. If you were hired and see no timesheet  contact the payroll office directly. Students complete a timesheets on a biweekly basis (weekly during the summer). Your supervisor must approve your time sheet for each pay period.

If your supervisor fails to approve your timesheet, notify the payroll office immediately. By law, you must be paid within one month of performing your job, but should be paid regularly every two weeks.

Apply Earnings to Tuition Bill

If you want to pay part or all of your tuition bill with your earnings, please complete the following form and submit it to the Office of Student Financial Services.

By submitting the authorization form, you are requesting that part or all of your earnings be directed to your Smith College tuition account; this is called payroll deduction.

Please allow several days for the processing of this form.

The amount you pledge to pay toward your tuition account through payroll deduction will be protected from late fees.

Each tuition bill you receive will show the payroll deduction credits made to your account.
