Kronos is the University's time reporting system and is used for submitting employee hours to Payroll.

This site provides you with the information to help you understand our timekeeping system and provide you with the necessary tools to complete your Kronos tasks. If additional information is needed or specialized instruction is required please call the Payroll department.

Remember that you have a direct effect on your employee’s paycheck. For this reason accuracy is very important and is also the reason we require that all forms be signed and dated.
