Payroll Services

To ensure the health and safety of our faculty, students, staff, and surrounding community, UMass Boston will continue to operate in hybrid fashion, with some courses lodged on campus and others—the majority—continuing in remote modality during the fall 2020 semester. Many answers about the campus's response to the coronavirus can be found in our special section.

Pay Process and Schedule

The University of Massachusetts Boston has a bi-weekly payroll system. Paychecks are issued on Friday. Please refer to the pay calendar for the pay dates. Pay statements are available online at HR Direct.

Direct Deposit

All new employees are required to sign up for direct deposit. Direct deposit means that your paycheck will be automatically deposited into your account once you enroll. You can sign up for direct deposit by entering your banking information into the HR Direct Self Service page.

Global Cash Card

For those employees who would prefer not to utilize direct deposit, you now have the option of receiving your bi-weekly pay through a Visa paycard through Global Cash Card. Detailed Information about the paycard program (including terms & conditions, fees and FAQs), can found below.
