How-to Guide: Filling Out Your Timesheet: Student hires

Getting paid

The MATC Student Time Report is, admittedly, a bit confusing. Please follow the instructions below, or consult your supervisor or visit C201, if you have any doubts about they way you are filling out your sheet.

  • Refer to the "Tutoring Services Student Pay Schedule" for due dates and pay dates.
  • At the Downtown Milwaukee Campus, timesheets are due in the Tutoring Services office, C201, no later than 6 p.m. Thursday unless otherwise noted on the pay schedule. At the other campuses, submit your timesheet to your supervisor.
  • When submitting your timesheet, please make sure that all times are entered correctly AND that they match your work visits in TutorTrac.
  • Your Start and Stop times should be entered as they appear on a digital clock.
  • Round your Start and Stop times to the nearest 15 minutes.
  • If you work more than six (6) hours consecutively, you must take a 30 minute unpaid break.
  • Make sure to include total hours for each DAY, WEEK, and PAY PERIOD. Totals should be written in decimal form.
  • Converting to decimal form:

    For example: say you worked 4 hours and 40 minutes. Rounded to the nearest 15 minutes, this is 4 hours and 45 minutes. In decimal form, this total is 4.75.
  • If you are scheduled to work days in a pay period after timesheets are due:
    • You must STILL turn them in by the due date!!!
    • Write in the hours you are scheduled to work.
    • If you do not work, or you need to make adjustments to the timesheet, contact the Tutoring Services office (or your manager, at the satellite campuses).
  • Attendance sheets for the pay period should be submitted with the corresponding timesheets. Please verify that your attendance is correctly entered in TutorTrac before turning in your sheets!
  • The Tutoring Services staff will make copies of your timesheet and attendance sheets for your supervisor; you do not need to do this.


Tutoring Services (in C201) is open from 7:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday for fall semester. We are closed during breaks.
