HR Direct Guidelines

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is coming to UMass!

MFA is a more secure method of signing in that protects your private information even if someone finds out your password. MFA enrollment will be gradually made available to all users in Fall 2017. Enrolled users will be able to log in to HR Direct, and access W2 and Direct Deposit Self Service with their UMass Boston username and password + another factor for authentication. Learn more at President's Office MFA page

W2 and Direct Deposit Self Service Access

W2 and Direct Deposit Self Service access are currently not available. All hard copies of W2 have been mailed to employees mailing address that are currently on file with Human Resources.

You will need to use your UMass Boston email and password.
