STUDENT TIMESHEETS ON AccessUNI: Through a new web-based student timesheet,
students may record their arrival and departure times using any computer
that has Netscape 4.0 or higher or Internet Explore 5.0 or higher. When
timesheets are due, they may be printed, signed by the student and the
supervisor, and submitted. The main advantage of the web-based timesheet
is that it automatically calculates the number of hours worked. Departments
are strongly encouraged to begin utilizing the new web-based Student
Timesheet, accessible through the student link of AccessUNI.
