Starting Tuesday, September 3rd, WVU employees will receive reimbursements via direct
deposit regardless of whether the payment is funded by WVU or the WVU Research Corporation.
A new process has been implemented utilizing the employee’s primary
bank account information established in the payroll system to automatically send
an ACH to the employee’s account when being reimbursed by the WVU Research Corporation.
WVU employees have been receiving reimbursements via ACH to their primary bank account
listed in their payroll record when being paid with WVU funds since the fall of 2017.
This change now provides a consistent payment method for both WVU and WVURC funded
payments. That means WVURC ACH registration for WVU employees will no longer be required.
When a payment is deposited into an individual’s bank account, a remittance advice
will be sent to the individual’s WVU email address, notifying them of the payment.
Note: For those WVU employees already registered to receive ACH payments using
a bank account different from the account set up for payroll purposes, the banking
information will automatically be changed to the primary bank account on record
