Getting Paid at Vanderbilt
Undergraduate students are compensated with an hourly wage while Graduate/Professional students may be paid hourly or monthly. Positions paid hourly require the employee to report their time worked using the online timesheet in Oracle Cloud via SkyVU. If students hold more than one position they must select the applicable position when recording time.
Hourly paid employees must submit their Timesheet by the established deadline for proper approval.
Payroll disbursements to student employees may be made as follows:
Vanderbilt University requires all employees to be paid via Direct Deposit. With the Human Resources on-campus office being closed for the foreseeable future and the Payroll Department working remotely, we encourage you to submit your account information via secure email using OneDrive for Business. For more information about using OneDrive, visit https://it.vanderbilt.edu/services/catalog/collaboration_and_communication/collaboration/Secure_File_Transfer_User_Guide_for_Microsoft_Office_365_OneDrive_V3.pdf
Please complete the direct deposit form (https://hr.vanderbilt.edu/forms/DDP-form-8.20.pdf) and send via OneDrive to email@example.com from your Vanderbilt email address. For security purposes, you can put the last 4 digits of your SSN on the form where it asks for that information.
Direct Deposit may take up to two pay periods to begin, so during that time, you may receive a paper paycheck. Paper checks are mailed to the address we have listed in Oracle, so we request that you review your contact information regularly. To update your address, after logging into Oracle, click the Personal Information icon and then Contact Info.
- A direct deposit to the employee’s financial institutional. This method is recommended.
