A timesheet used to create your paycheck, so it's important to submit it on time. When the hiring paperwork is on file with Human Resources — the student and supervisor have completed the forms — students can start entering the time worked, online. The supervisor has to approve the online time sheet so make sure to keep an accurate record.
Your employment records for College Work-Study and your academic records are different. When you move or leave UB, make sure your mailing address is correct so you will receive your tax forms.
