Timesheet procedures for Course Assistants

Course Assistants must submit timesheets each week. Teaching Fellows and Course Coaches receive a salary and do not submit timesheets.

You may enter and submit hours online each week if you've received an email from the HKS Office of Human Resources that includes a link to the PeopleSoft payroll system. You must submit your time by 12 p.m. Friday. If you miss this deadline, you will need to submit an Excel timesheet. There will be a delay in processing your payment that week.

If you have not received an email from HR, you will need to submit the Excel timesheets. These must be signed by faculty members or faculty assistants and are due by 12 p.m. Friday. Plan accordingly.
