Payroll for International Employees

If you are a foreign individual that works for UMass - including employees, students, and researcher - we can guide you through the payment process.

Accessing Payroll Information

Many payroll functions, including timesheets, direct deposit, and copies of your paycheck, can be found in HR Direct. Detailed HR Direct user guides provide step-by-step instructions for completing common payroll tasks on each campus website. You can access your campus's user guides through the HR Direct Support Materials section on this page.   

Payroll Taxes

Payroll tax and withholding information are available in GLACIER. You can use GLACIER to manage your tax status and ensure that the University is handling your U.S. tax obligations correctly.

UMass provides guidance on U.S. tax obligations for any foreign national who receives payments from the university, including students, employees, independent contractors, researchers, and teachers. Visit our nonresident alien tax and compliance site to learn more.
