PioneerTime is DU’s timekeeping and leave reporting system.

Most DU employees, with the exception of faculty and some graduate student positions, use the PioneerTime system. Hours entered and approved in PioneerTime are uploaded and used to calculate paycheck amounts. Exempt (monthly paid) employees enter leave hours taken each pay period. Non-exempt (bi-weekly paid) employees enter hours worked and leave taken (if applicable) each pay period.

To ensure that paychecks are accurate:

1) Employees must properly record their hours in PioneerTime 

2) Both the employee and supervisor must closely review and approve the employee timecard by the end of the pay period.
