Kronos Time Entry

About Kronos

Kronos is the University's official time entry system of record.

Kronos is used by biweekly-paid regular staff, temporary employees, and student employees to log hours each pay period. Monthly-paid staff, librarians, and postdocs 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.

Ensure you are logging in with your NetID in lowercase letters (e.g. krh739 not KRH742).

Kronos deadlines

Note that deadlines may occur earlier around University holidays or when monthly deadlines fall on a weekend.
