What Do You Need to Do?

Access to Workday requires you to be enrolled in Duo, the UW’s two-factor authentication (2FA) solution.

Duo Eligibility Window
Former employees are eligible to enroll in Duo through the remainder of the year in which they left the University, plus three years afterward.

⇒ If you ARE NOT within the Duo eligibility window:
Update your address and other contact information in Workday by contacting the ISC to request the desired changes.

3. In Workday, update your legal name, address, and/or email address by selecting the Personal Information worklet and the relevant button(s) in the “Change” section.

If you no longer work at the University, you can still access your payslips. However, the way you will access them depends on how long it has been since you were a UW employee.
