What is Kronos?

Kronos is the online timecard system used by Faculty, Staff, and Student Workers of USD. The Kronos system allows you to input and sign your timecard to be approved by your supervisor every pay period. It tracks all daily and weekly totals, and is fully functional for people with multiple campus jobs on the same timecard.

Why do I want Kronos?

If you work for the University, you need to submit your timecards via Kronos in order to be paid on the bi-monthly pay schedule.

If you are a current hourly employee or if you supervise hourly employees, you will be given access to Kronos after employment paperwork is processed. You may access Kronos at or through the MySanDiego portal. Your MySanDiego username and password will give you access to your timecard.
