The migrating from MCAD's current payroll system, Dayforce to a new HR Information System (HRIS) Paylocity is underway. This page will provide updates on the transition, as well as training resources and other helpful information. The Office of Human Resources will continue to provide updates via email along the way. Please direct any questions to


WHY THE CHANGE? Dayforce was found to not be the best fit for MCAD. After a length review process, Paylocity was selected due to the adjustable/adaptable nature of the platform, their investments in innovation, cost, and their experience with higher education institutions such as MCAD. We anticipate a learning curve with Paylocity as with any new system, and we may have some hiccups along the way. However, we feel this will be a significant improvement from the system we are using today.


TIME TO LOG IN!: You should have received an email from Human Resources with information on getting logged in for the first time. To get logged in, go to ACCESS.PAYLOCITY.COM, click on REGISTER NEW USER. Paylocity has some robust security measures to protect your personal data, so we will be using their secure login process (so, no single sign on as we had with Dayforce). After clicking, REGISTER NEW USER the system will guide you through the registration process, asking you to provide information that matches you to your employee payroll data, and will require you to set up some security questions. You will need our Company ID which is 110804.
