Get Timesheets In On Time

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.

Submit an Online Timesheet

  1. Go to www.suny.edu/hrportal
  2. If prompted, select Buffalo Univ.
  3. If prompted, log in with your UBITName and password
  4. Click Time and Attendance in the Self Service menu
