Time Sheets

Time sheets are submitted and approved on a bi-weekly basis via MyNMU for all Technical Office Professionals (UAW Local 1950), Administrative/Professionals (UAW Local 2178), and all other non-represented staff.  All time sheets must be submitted and approved by Tuesday at 11 a.m. after the close of the pay period.  Please refer to the payroll calendar at http://www.nmu.edu/paydates.

Instructions for Submitting Time Sheets via MyNMU
Instructions for Approving Time Sheets via MyNMU

A time sheet may have several different statuses as it progresses through the submittal and approval process as explained below:

Not Started – the employee has not opened and started the time sheet for the specific pay period.  The supervisor cannot view the time sheet.  A supervisor will not be able to select a pay period to view until at least one employee in the department has started their time sheet for that specific pay period.

In Progress – the employee has started the time sheet but it has not been submitted for approval.  The supervisor can view the timesheet but cannot take any action until the time sheet has been submitted for approval.

Pending – the employee has submitted the time sheet which is now pending the supervisor’s approval.  The supervisor can take choose to Approve, Return for Correction, or Change Record.  Employees can use the Return Time button at the bottom of a time sheet in Pending status to return the timesheet to themselves, make corrections, and Submit for Approval again.

Approved – the time sheet has been approved by the supervisor.  A time sheet in Approved status can only be returned by the supervisor for the employee to make corrections.  Employees cannot return Approved time sheets to themselves.

Returned for Correction – the time sheet was returned to the employee by the supervisor for correction.

Completed – the time sheet has been processed through payroll. 

Overridden – the time sheet was not approved by the supervisor by the submittal deadline and was overridden by payroll.
