In order to receive a paycheck, student employees holding SHRA positions must capture their time in the Time Information Management System or TIM, UNC’s official time capturing system used to track time worked and calculate paychecks.
Student employees holding SHRA positions must log into TIM at the start and end of each shift worked to capture their times in and out. For instance, if you take a break, you will need to log into TIM and capture the time out before leaving. When you return from a break, you will need to log into TIM and capture your time in. This will ensure hours worked are accurately reflected in TIM.
For student employees holding SHRA positions how you track hours in TIM may vary depending on the classification of your position or how you have been set up in UNC’s HR system.
Please note that student employees holding EHRA positions, typically graduate students in academic positions, will not capture time worked in TIM.
To log time worked with a Time Stamp in TIM, you can either go directly to the TIM website or access TIM via ConnectCarolina. You will need to log in using your UNC Onyen and password. To record time worked, you will need to log in to TIM and record a Time Stamp at the start and end of each shift, and the start and end of any breaks taken during the workday. Visit UNC Finance and Operations for further instructions on how to accurately record time with a Time Stamp in TIM.
To record time worked with a physical Badge Terminal, you will need to locate the Badge Terminal nearest to your place of work and swipe your UNC One Card at the start and end of each shift, and the start and end of any breaks taken during the workday, to capture time worked. Visit UNC Finance and Operations for further instructions on how to accurately record hours with a Badge Terminal and for a map of Badge Terminal locations.
If you hold more than one SHRA position, the first thing you should do is notify each supervisor that you hold multiple positions. When logging hours for multiple positions, there are several things to keep in mind:
- Your primary position, typically the first position you’ve held, will be the default position that hours worked will be automatically assigned to when logged in to TIM.
- When logging hours for other positions be mindful that you select the correct position to log time worked. Review the TIM Employee Manual (page 6, Transferring to a Secondary Position) for more information and instructions on recording time worked for multiple positions.
Contact your supervisor for additional questions or for further assistance.
If you are a graduate student in an academic position such as Graduate Assistant, Graduate Research Assistant, or Graduate Teaching Assistant, you will likely be paid for time worked with a monthly stipend. student employees holding EHRA positions, typically graduate students in academic positions, will not capture time worked in TIM. If you have questions regarding logging hours for an academic position, speak with your supervisor or the student services manager in your department.
