Payroll

Direct Deposit

Direct deposit is required for all UNCW employees. Completed direct deposit forms can be sent to payroll@uncw.edu

If you have not yet submitted a completed direct deposit form, you will receive a paper check. 

Payroll checks are sent to the Cashier's office for pickup on payday, you must have a picture ID. Always confirm hours of operation and closing dates, this can be found on the cashier's website. If the office is closed due to holidays or COVID, checks will be mailed to your primary address.

 

 TAX 

Multi-State Taxation

If you are a UNCW employee and work in a state other than the state of North Carolina, you may have a tax liability to the state in which you work. Income tax withholding defaults to North Carolina. Thus if you are working from another state, you need to reach out to the Tax Accountant at eakinsl@uncw.edu
