Recording your Time

Students are required to enter their time worked in the ADP Timekeeping System.  You will first need to Register with ADP (PDF) to set up your username and password.  You must Record Your Time Worked (PDF) on your timecard each day.  Or you can use this Mobile App (PDF) .  In order to be paid, your supervisor will be required to approve time worked in ADP.  Student employees will not be paid for hours worked in excess of the award amount indicated on your Financial Aid Award Notification Letter or for time worked after the period when the time card was due (end of the month).

Students are paid once a month.  All time worked must be entered into the ADP timekeeping system by the end of the month and will be paid on the last pay day of the following month.  Supervisors need to approve time before the 10th of the month to ensure timely payroll processing.  Here are the pay dates for 2015-2016.
