The Indiana State University Office of the Controller is pleased to announce the ability to pay vendors, employees, and students via direct deposit (ACH) for non-payroll items. Payments from ISU Accounts Payable can be deposited directly into your bank account with no waiting for a check to be mailed to you! Notification of payment will be sent via e-mail.
If you change accounts or banks after signing up, change your direct deposit information via the MyISU Portal using the directions below or download and fill out a new form and return it to us with an indication that your information has changed.
If you wish to stop using the direct deposit service please let us know by e-mailing email@example.com. For student accounts, the email must come from the student's Sycamore email address and include their University ID Number.
