Time and Attendance

Self-Service Time and Attendance

Fitchburg State is now utilizing our current payroll system in a more efficient manner, having rolled out the self-service module for time and attendance to most of our employee population. This module allows our employees a secure method to submit their attendance to their supervisor, obtain electronic supervisory approval, and immediate electronic submission to the payroll office. Not only does this program save time and resources, it also saves paper and contributes to a healthier environment.

Please do not make changes to your attendance on Mondays. Doing so could result in not getting a full paycheck. If you need to make changes after your attendance has been approved by your supervisor, please check with payroll before making the change.

Training Opportunities

If you need training on the self-service module, please contact the payroll hotline at 978.665.3177.

Time and Attendance Deadlines

Each week, employees must submit their time utilizing the new self-service module by Wednesday at 12:00pm. Supervisors must then approve their employees' time submissions by 5:00pm on Wednesday. Employees should never make adjustments after the deadline without checking with payroll first. Doing so may lead to an underpayment.

Logging In

Your login ID is your 6-digit employee ID number. This number can be found on your pay advice, or by contacting the self-service hotline. If you have used the previous time and attendance system, it is the same ID that you use for that.

Your default password is as follows: the first letter of your first name (uppercase), the first letter of your last name (lowercase), followed by the same 6-digit employee ID number and the last 4 digits of your social security number, totaling a 12-character password. Once you have logged in, you will be prompted to change your password. Please change this to something that you'll remember.

Forgot Your Password?

If you've forgotten your password, the most efficient way to obtain it is to utilize the "Forgot Your Password" link on the self-service login page. If you still cannot access the system, call the self-service hotline at 978.665.3177.
