Kronos is the University's official time entry system; biweekly-paid regular staff and temporary employees log hours into Kronos each pay period. Monthly-paid staff use Kronos to record vacation, sick, and other leave time each month.
Kronos is accessible from any on-campus wired or wireless computer. To use Kronos from off-campus or University housing, you must connect to the NU VPN first. New employees and supervisors automatically receive access to Kronos the day after the employee has been hired.

• Apr 5: Exempt (monthly) staff must have all leave for March 2013 entered
• Apr 12: Managers must approve March 2013 leave time for exempt staff
• Need to change the Kronos approver? FASIS Admin users can change or delegate the approvers for monthly staff and post-docs in their department using this procedure.
Employees who work part-time or who work full-time with a flex schedule must submit their schedule to HR. This ensures that Kronos accruately records time off without over- or under-charging your available leave.
Note: Full-time employees who work a standard five day work week (Mon-Fri) with the same number of hours each day (i.e. 7.5 or 8) do not need to submit this form, regardless of daily start and end times.
Exempt staff must record and submit time off, and supervisors must approve that time, at the end of each month.
After the end of the fiscal year, vacation balances are rolled over into the next fiscal year in accordance with University policy. Employees who do not submit their leave accrual by the deadline will not have their vacation balance carried over and will be zeroed out. To have your balance corrected, you must complete the following form to report your accrual usage.
