Human Resources Applications

The HR Service Delivery and Systems team oversees and supports multiple University business applications. These applications enable:

  • the University to store, maintain and report on key data about its faculty, staff and retirees
  • managers to electronically approve time, submit open jobs, review job applications/resumes, view staff records and produce reports
  • faculty and staff to view and manage their own personal and emergency information
  • all in HR to provide service to our customers on a daily basis

Below is information about HR's four primary systems and how managers and administrators can gain access, generate reports and find documentation.

Time Collection (TCS) is Princeton University’s web – based time card processing system. It compensates the University's nonexempt biweekly – paid employees, including casual hourly employees and students. These employees and their supervisors can record and approve time worked as well as nonproductive time, such as vacation or holiday hours. TCS provides labor distribution information for noncommitted earnings for regular employees and all labor distribution for student and casual hourly employees.

Hiring managers who need access to the application system for academic positions, effective January 3, 2017, should contact the Office of the Dean of the Faculty.
