Next Steps

  • Your request to enroll in Payroll Deduction will be sent to Student Financial Services for review and set up.
  • The Payroll Deduction contract will not be activated until the enrollment deadline for the applicable quarter. Until the contract is activated, your Payroll Deduction Plan status in Axess will indicate "Requested".
  • To check the status of your request, logon to Axess per steps one and two. The following is an explanation of each status:
    • Requested – the student request is submitted and is under review by Student Financial Services.
    • Set Up – Student Financial Services has determined that all your eligibility criteria ARE met. The next paycheck will show a deduction. You will be able to see the amount that was deducted on the University bill and on the paycheck advice stub.
    • Not Set Up – Student Financial Services has determined that all your eligibility criteria ARE NOT met. Your request was denied.
    • Canceled – Payroll deduction has been canceled at the student’s request, or as the result of the end of the payroll deduction period.
