Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is one of the ways Cal Poly Pomona is committed to continually improving customer service and protecting employee information.

All direct deposit requests (e.g., new, change, cancel) are accepted through a secure online portal that can be accessed by logging into MyCPP and clicking on the Employee Center tab. Employees enter their direct deposit information directly into PeopleSoft Self-Service and receive confirmation of the activity via email. Requests received by the 10th of each month should appear in an employee’s bank account on the next pay cycle.

  • Avoidance of long lines at your financial institution on pay day.
  • Convenient and consistent deposit of earnings in spite of business absences, vacations or illnesses.
  • Security in the knowledge that pay warrants cannot be lost, stolen or forged.
  • Less risk of error due to a pay warrant being lost or misdirected by your financial institution.

The Schedule of Dates for Direct Deposit Postings is provided below, however, you should contact the Direct Deposit Coordinator at your financial institution for the date and time of day that direct deposit postings are made.

Faculty - All Bargaining Unit 3 employees are eligible. 

Staff - Because the direct deposit enrollment process takes approximately 45-60 days, the eligibility requirement for staff is that the length of their appointment exceed 90 calendar days.

Student Assistants - Students in all student classifications are eligible to enroll.

Employees can access the Direct Deposit Request link in MyCPP - Employee Center

To change their Direct Deposit account, employees can access the Direct Deposit Request link in MyCPP - Employee Center. Your direct deposit will be redirected to your new account and/or new financial institution. With the Employee Self-Service Direct Deposit secure portal, requests received by the 10th of each month should appear in an employee’s bank account on the next pay cycle.

It is extremely important to leave your old account open until your first payment is deposited into your new account. If your old account is closed before you notify the State Controller's Office of the change, the payment will be rejected by the financial institution and a paycheck will not be issued until the payment returns to the Controller's Office.

  • An employee must have an active PeopleSoft record and the appointment must appear in the State Controller’s Office (SCO) PIMS database before the transaction is processed
  • An employee (e.g., faculty, staff, student) can make one change per day to their direct deposit.
  • If an error occurs with the entry of the employee’s bank routing or account number, an employee may make the correction in PeopleSoft on the next day, or the SCO will reject the transaction and a new request will need to be submitted by the employee
  • On Payday, paychecks are distributed at 4:00 p.m., and direct deposits are posted into bank accounts in 1-2 business days, depending on the banking institution. For example, if the payday is December 1, 2021, the direct deposit will occur on December 2, 2021
