If you are a Manager please refer to HR Direct for more information. It is our centralized, easy-to-use, self-service application all current UMass Lowell employees use to manage human resource and payroll data.


Managers should be approving employee time in HR Direct if your direct reports are hourly students and temporary employees; mid-management & non-unit professionals; or any clerical & technical staff.

NOTE: All students time must be approved on-line or it will not be paid.

The system deadline for managers to approve time is Monday at 11:59 p.m. of the critical payroll week. The Pay Schedule can be viewed on-line.


Employees only have self-service timesheet access to the current payroll weeks. They do not have access to report late time, or adjust prior period time. To report late time, complete one of the late timesheets below and contact one of our campus timekeepers to assist you with the time entry.


For your convenience, you can also review the University Timekeeper list.
