Recording Time

Effective July 1, all hourly student employees will begin using TimeClock Plus, an automated web clock tool, to clock in and out throughout their shift. TimeClock Plus is available through all devices.

Some offices and departments will continue to use a physical time clock rather than the online tool. Please check with your supervisor to confirm how you will clock in and out.
