ACH Enrollment

Cornell University can process non-payroll payments to vendors, employees, and other payees through the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system (i.e., direct deposit). At this time, direct deposit payments can only be distributed in U.S. dollars to U.S. bank accounts. If you have questions about these forms or the direct deposit process, please contact Accounts Payable.

To sign up to receive non-payroll payments by direct deposit, you must complete the following form.

Accounts Payable ACH Authorization Form

Note: This is a fillable form. You can download it and save it with your changes (to keep for your records). If your browser prompts you to display the form with a different viewer, in Firefox click Open with Different Viewer, and either open it with Acrobat Reader (opens it outside your browser) or download the document to your desktop, and open it with Adobe Acrobat Reader. You can also change browser preferences to use Acrobat Reader as the default reader, which may solve the issue.
