You can sign in to Workday with your UW NetID and password but remember you’ll need two-factor authentication (2FA) to access payroll and some personal information, such as payslips, tax documents or home address. 2FA adds a second layer of security to protect your personal and University data from being stolen or compromised. If you’re an HR or payroll staff member with elevated security roles, you’ll need 2FA to sign into Workday.

Some quick steps you can take to get the most out of Workday include how to submit your time sheet on time, enroll in direct deposit and verify your address in Workday. Submit your time (and time off requests) for approval by each pay period’s deadline. Incorrect addresses are one of the biggest slowdowns for delivering paychecks and establishing benefits, so make sure your permanent address is up-to-date. Use the Pay worklet to change your payment election and enroll in direct deposit.

Six Catalyst Web tools — Collect It, CommonView, GoPost, QuickPoll, UMail and WebQ Quiz — are on a timeline to retire, with better solutions now available. WebQ Survey and Gradebook will not be retired. Find out about UW-IT’s plan to help users transition from Catalyst to alternative options. The retirement stems from the University’s commitment to modernize our technology infrastructure and allocate resources to solutions that best meet demand. Use of these Catalyst tools has declined by 66 percent over the past four years. Many were built on outdated technology; updating them would require a considerable investment.

UWTV showcases how a summer program empowers high school students with disabilities to succeed in college. The program, offered by the Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking, and Technology (DO-IT) Center since 1992, boosts the confidence of students with disabilities and teaches them how to advocate for themselves. Participating students get access to technology, college preparation, peer support and mentoring.
