Employee Self-Service allows student-workers, staff and faculty to view and, in some cases, edit certain information that pertains to the payroll.  Initially, this portal was simply a means to view data.  Now, you have the power to make changes without having to schedule time for a trip to the Payroll Office.  The Self-Service portal is available to you anytime, day or night.

What you can do in the Employee Self-Service portal

  • View Paycheck - View and print a .PDF copy of pay statements.
  • Direct Deposit - Employees must contact Payroll to edit or start Direct Deposit.
  • W-4 Tax Information - View and edit your federal tax elections.
  • View W-2/W-2c Forms - View and print a .PDF copy of your year end tax forms.
  • W-2/W-2c Consent - Authorization to receive annual W-2 forms electronically. (Consent is required to view W-2 form online.)
  • W-2 Reissue Request - Send a request to Payroll to provide another copy of your W-2 form. (No copies will be provided to those who have consented to electronic delivery.)
