Time Management

Time Management is the timekeeping module within the overall my.SMU.edu administrative system. Both exempt and non-exempt employees use Time Management. For non-exempt (hourly-paid) employees, time records reflect time worked and time taken off. For exempt (salary-paid) staff and Post Doctoral employees, time records are used report time off from scheduled work days.

System Availability

Time Management is available 24 hours a day, except for scheduled maintenance on Thursday nights from 9:00 - 11:00 PM.

Special maintenance requirements may cause my.SMU to be unavailable at other times. OIT will communicate these events to campus when necessary.
