Reimbursement

Reimbursement Options: Both direct deposit and check payment options are available to both employees and students for reimbursement of their out-of-pocket business expenses. Reimbursement via check is the default payment option, but we encourage both employees and students to sign up for direct deposit. Employees can sign up for Non-Payroll Direct Deposit on the home page of My Slice. Students can sign up Non-Payroll Direct Deposit.
