Readers and Tutors transitioning to CalTime

We’re updating CalTime to include Readers and Tutors. We’re making this change because it will ensure we are aligned with best practices for timekeeping across the UC system and it will help facilitate on-time pay as CalTime sends reminder notifications to both employees and managers to remind their employees to complete timesheets and managers to approve. 

Readers or Tutors who are paid hourly on a biweekly pay cycle should begin submitting timesheets electronically in CalTime starting on May 31, 2020.

Please refer to the CalTime training page for reader and tutor jobs aids.

We are working with Berkeley Regional Services (BRS) to adjust processes and communicate changes. If you have a question about submitting timesheets as a Reader/Tutor, please submit a ticket to BRS HR/APS through ServiceNow or contact your respective HR Generalist. If you have a question about CalTime, please email

CalTime is Berkeley's timekeeping system

Whether you are an employee, supervisor, or timekeeper, explore our site to learn more about timekeeping with CalTime. Everyone is responsible for accurate timekeeping:

  • Employees report work and leave time on their timecards
  • Supervisors review and approve their employees’ timecards
  • Timekeepers sign off on their units’ timecards

Are you biweekly or monthly paid?

Are you a supervisor?

Thank you for using CalTime!

There are several training videos available to help employees and supevisors navigate in CalTime. Please visit the CalTime training page for a catalogue of available training videos. At this time, these videos are not applicable to biweekly paid employees in reader and tutor job titles.
