Managing My Time & Attendance


As a University employee, you are responsible for the timely and accurate reporting of your work hours. If you are a non-exempt employee, you are paid on an hourly basis and must account for your time in up to 15 minute increments. Exempt employees are salaried and report time on a weekly basis.

Kronos — Most employees use Kronos — the campus’ electronic time management system — to keep track of their work status, time and attendance, while helping to ensure compliance with pay rules and regulations, leave requests, and applicable University policy and collective bargaining agreements.

Timesheets — Some departments will continue to report time manually until they transition to Kronos, thereby using one of the following forms to record and report work hours:

  1. Monthly Timecard for Exempt Employees (salaried employees)
  2. Biweekly Timecard for Non-Exempt Employees (hourly employees, temporary employees and work-study students)

Paid Time Off

Generally, all employees may accrue vacation, compensatory time and sick hours to use for paid time off. Employees are also generally eligible for Holiday pay. The amount of paid leave accrued is determined by your title/pay plan, percentage of time and the amount of qualified service credit. Specific information on how to calculate paid time off and determine usage of that time is available in the applicable University policy or collective bargaining agreement. The following tables, found in the Useful Links box to the right, provide general guidance and assistance for understanding the calculation of paid leaves:
