A Web Service
to View Payroll and Personnel Information
Divisions of Finance, Human Resources and Information Systems
& Computing are pleased to announce the first release of U@PENN,
a new, secure web service that allows faculty, staff, and student
employees who receive payments through the University payroll
system to review their individual pay stubs, benefit information
and payroll/personnel data online.
initial services that will be available to you on May 14
are as follows:
each of your weekly or monthly pay stubs that have been issued
since November 19, 2001.
a description of the Retirement Plan in which you participate
and the amount of your contributions, along with contact information
for your health & welfare benefits. Also, for non-exempt employees
whose Paid Time Off balances are kept in the payroll system, the
current balances will be reported.
your personal data maintained in the University's payroll/personnel
system. Examples include: home address, emergency contact, date
hired, job class, your school or center & organizational unit,
to other web sites associated with your employment at the University
answers to frequently asked Payroll or Human Resource questions
collected from the Payroll Office & Human Resources.
U@Penn at https://sentry.isc.upenn.edu/uatpenn
anytime Monday through Sunday, except 4 a.m. to 6 a.m.
is the first step in building the foundation for a faculty and
staff portal or electronic gateway that will eventually allow
individuals to not only view their infor-mation, but also to interact
electronically with the Payroll/Personnel system in order to keep
their data accurate and up to date.
great deal of care has been taken to provide a system that protects
your privacy and prevents other people from gaining access to
your information. The access and security components of U@Penn
are described below:
To access U@Penn, you will need a PennNet ID and Password. Your
PennNet ID is unique and determines which information you are
eligible to view. The associated password, which should be known
only to you, prevents others from viewing your information. It
is very important that you not divulge the password associated
with your PennNet ID.
you do not have a PennNet ID, you should visit http://www.upenn.edu/computing/help/doc/passport/netid.html
for instructions or visit the Penn Card Center or PennNet ID stations
Once signed onto the U@Penn service using your PennNet ID and
password, you are connected to a secure web site, signified by
https://' instead of http://' at the
beginning of the URL. Secure sites incorporate technology that
protects data from being viewed in transit from a database to
Your payroll information is not actually stored on the web. Only
when you select information on the U@Penn site is that information
retrieved from the personnel/payroll system and displayed on your
screen. For example, when you click on the My Pay' tab,
pay information is transmitted to your screen; if you don't click,
nothing is transmitted.
hope you will find this new self-service application convenient
to use and that direct access to your data will be effective.
We would very much like to hear your comments and/or suggestions
for features that should be considered for inclusion in the next
