HR Direct

HR Direct is a UMass self-service application, which is available to all UMass employees.  HR Direct allows employees to manage some human resources and payroll data online.

Through HR Direct, employees have access to the following types of information, including but not limited to:

  • View paycheck.
  • View personal information.
  • View and update emergency contact information.
  • Enroll in or change direct deposit information.
  • Update/edit federal (W4) and state tax (M4) withholding information.
  • View and Print a Copy of W-2 Year-End Tax Statements.
  • Electronic W-2 Consent is Now Available


PageUp is an applicant tracking system (ATS). The application is hosted on the vendor’s server. Candidates see the database through the UMass website, or a job board, where they can apply and upload their resume, cover letter and other required documents. Through PageUp, the University can communicate with applicants and manage the screening process. PageUp provides technical support to applicants regarding login and other system-related issues and will communicate directly with candidates on technical issues.
