For students receiving stipend payments from the Jackson School, your stipend checks will be distributed weekly on Thursdays, starting September 1, 2022 through May 18, 2023. You can calculate your weekly check amount by dividing your award stipend amount by 38 installments.

Direct Deposit - Payment Elections

We strongly encourage you to set up a direct deposit of your stipend checks into a bank account of your choice in the United States. This is the fastest and most convenient way to access your stipend each pay period. To set up a direct deposit, follow these steps:

  1. Login to Workday using your NetID and password.
  2. Select the “Pay” widget on your Workday homepage.
  3. Next, select “Payment Elections.” From here, use the “Add” function to add a new account for direct deposit. You may add more than one account, and you can choose how to allocate funds across your accounts.

Once you have set up direct deposit, it may take one or two pay periods to take effect. Until then, your stipend check will be mailed to your home address listed in Workday under “Contacts”.


View Your Payslip

You should review your payslips each month in Workday:

Log into Workday using your NetID and password.

Select the “Pay” widget on your Workday homepage.

Under “View,” select “Payslips.”
