Payroll Payment Method Information

Payroll offers two methods of payment: direct deposit and paycard. These two methods help MCC guarantee the timely and consistent payment for all employees.

Direct Deposit

With Direct Deposit, your money is deposited into your bank account on payday. You still receive an electronic Pay Stub from Mott Community College to let you know your account has been credited. Set up Direct Deposit accounts, edit exist accounts or remove accounts electronically through MyBackpack.

Add / Edit / Cancel Accounts for Direct Deposit


With Paycard Payments, you will receive one paycard for the remainder of your time at MCC. This card can then be used by other employers or for IRS refunds! All new hires will be automatically enrolled into paycards unless they provide direct deposit information. Additionally, any MCC employee can opt to be paid via paycard for either their entire check or a set amount every pay. To do so, they should contact the Payroll Coordinator. See links below for more information on paycards and our paycard vendor.
