OneUSG Connect - Faculty Important Tips

Thursday, January 10, 2019

Note:  This communication was distributed on January 10, 2019 to all UGA faculty.

On December 16, 2018, the University of Georgia began using the OneUSG Connect system as our new human resources and payroll system. Here are some key points to consider: 

With new year tax laws, possible salary increases, and a new system, your tax withholdings most likely will change. This could result in net pay that is different than you anticipated. Also, summer school pay will no longer be taxed at the supplemental rate; but rather at the standard tax withholding rates. Please remember that tax withholdings are estimations of your tax liability for the year. If you would like to make changes to tax withholdings, there  are instructions in the Training Library for viewing and changing your information.

We encourage you to login to the new system and view your Compensation History to verify that any merit raise that you received effective January 1 is accurately reflected; if you feel that this is not accurately reflected, please bring it to the attention of your supervisor.

Your University System of Georgia (USG) job code and title in the new system may be different from your official UGA job title (or working title). Please do not be concerned. With this transition to a USG-wide payroll system, each employee has been assigned a USG job category. Your official UGA job title (or working title) and supervisor have not changed and can be verified by checking your directory entry at

All faculty will be paid on the last business day of the month. Pay dates for 2019 are available on the 2019 Annual Payroll Processing Calendar . Please review the Faculty and Staff Guide for helpful resources and tips for using the new system. There also is a faculty checklist of recommended actions as well as information on how to view and understand your new “Pay Advice” (paycheck stub)

Thank you for your attention to this matter and for your patience during this transition. Please contact us at or 706-542-0202 if you have questions or need assistance using the new system..
