Fitchburg State uses the self-service module of our payroll system for time and attendance for most of our employee population. This gives our employees a secure method to submit their attendance to their supervisor, obtain electronic supervisory approval, and immediate electronic submission to the payroll office.
Time and Attendance Deadlines
Each week, employees must submit their time using the employee self service website on Tuesday or by 12:00pm on Wednesday. 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.
Important: 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.
