SharkTime (Kronos) is the University's time and attendance application. The upgrade enables electronic requesting, approving and reporting of time-off for all benefit-eligible employees. Both exempt and non-exempt employees will have the ability to send their supervisor a request for sick, personal, vacation, jury duty and bereavement time-off electronically via SharkTime. Supervisors will also approve or deny time-off requests for their direct reports electronically via SharkTime.

Accordingly, all NSU benefit-eligible employees and supervisors will become SharkTime users and manual leave forms currently utilized for exempt employees will be eliminated. Paper timesheets currently used for multiple-job employees will also be eliminated.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Requests for family and medical leaves, medical disability leaves or discretionary leaves of absence will not be made through SharkTime. These types of leaves are reported through Matrix. Please refer to:
