Watch this page! Information will be updated with the launch of Workday and the Integrated Service Center (ISC) on June 27, 2017.

As of June 19, 2017, the current UW payroll system (HEPPS; OPUS) and other legacy systems, including Employee Self Service (ESS) and OWLS, will no longer accept edits and will be converted to read-only in preparation for Workday go-live. Learn more about how you can get ready for Workday by visiting the HR/Payroll Modernization Program website.

Request access to OWLS

Many department administrators are authorized to grant OWLS timekeeper and administrator access for their unit(s). If you are unsure, check here to determine who can authorize access to your department’s Payroll Unit Code (PUC).

If your search doesn’t return any results, your department’s administrator may not be authorized to grant access directly. As such, he/she should request OWLS system access by completing the appropriate online form below.

OWLS access requests must be completed and submitted by the department administrator. Requests submitted by someone other than the administrator cannot be completed.

If your department’s administrator is not authorized to grant access, he/she should request OWLS system access or access removal by completing one of the appropriate online forms below:
