New Online Process For Reporting Time Off

Monthly timesheets are now available in Access.SMU for September time off reporting.

Any time off (vacation, sick, etc.) taken in September and going forward should be reported electronically in TIMEaccess. Get started by going to Time Reporting under Employee Self-Service.

Please note: if you do not take any time off during a specific month, you will need to verify that no time was taken by logging into the TIMEaccess system and selecting the appropriate time reporting code, “NLT” which means “No Leave Taken.” Otherwise, you will report each type of time off taken (vacation, sick, etc.) each month in the TIMEaccess system, rather than submitting a paper report.

Your time off, or verification that time was not taken, for the month of September should be entered by the deadline established by your department to allow sufficient time for approvals to occur before the payroll processing deadline.

For details on how to navigate within the TIMEaccess system to report your time off, link to the TIMEaccess training materials on the Payroll website. You can access the Monthly Time Reporter > Reporting Time Off tutorial and guide from here at any time.

Managers and approvers have been invited to attend training on the TIMEaccess system which will prepare them to assist you with questions related to entering your time. The OIT Help Desk will also be able to provide assistance with questions; you may contact them at or 214-768-4357.
