New Employees / Activating Your Timesheet

There are a few steps you need to follow in order to gain access to your online timesheet to report hours for the first time.

  1. Get an Employee Identification Number (EMPLID)
    This should come to your personal email.
  2. Get a UAPin
    This should come to your personal email.
  3. Create a NetID
    Once you have your EMPLID and UAPin, go to to create a NetID and password.
  4. Log into UAccess to activate your timesheet
    The first time you log into UAccess, you will not have access to your timesheet. You must log in once and wait at least 12 hours before your timesheet will be activated to report hours. To log in, go to and click on Employee/Manager Self Service. Use your NetID and password to log into the system.

Submitting Time on Your Timesheet

Positive reporters and Exception reporters report their time differently. Follow the links below for step-by-step instructions on how to properly report your time.

Best Practices for Reporting Time

  • Report hours on timesheet daily
  • Submit your time before the deadline
  • Check your timesheet before approval deadlines to verify your hours were approved. Approval deadlines are Friday of the non-pay week before 5 PM for Mon-Fri employees or Monday of pay week before 9 AM for weekend employees. Contact your supervisor immediately if any hours are not approved.
  • If you are in a status other than Student or Grad, verify you are using the proper TRC when submitting time.
  • Submit hours ahead of time if you will be out of the office. If you are unexpectedly sick when your hours are due for payroll, please contact your supervisor to submit the hours for you.
