First Month

Your First 30 Days

Throughout your first month, you will complete several important processes, and you will have the opportunity to learn about many of our campus resources and services.


Non-faculty employees are required to enter and submit hours worked in a timely and accurate manner. Employees submit timesheets directly into PeopleSoft Time and Attendance, and the timesheet will route through PeopleSoft to your supervisor for approval.

Timesheet deadlines vary by employee classification. You can find your employee classification type in Peoplesoft on the upper right side of the timesheet screen. Learn more about the payroll process and deadlines.

Compliance Training

UTSA is committed to maintaining an environment that is welcoming, safe, accessible, inclusive and a true embodiment of our core institutional values. To ensure you have the knowledge needed to comply with general university policies and relevant state and federal laws, you are required to complete compliance training during your first month at UTSA. Compliance training will be assigned to you within your first week of employment through the MyTraining portal. Once assigned, you will have 30 days to complete all required modules.


If you are a benefits-eligible employee, you must enroll in (or opt out of) employee benefits. Within your first few weeks at UTSA, you will receive an email with benefits instructions. If you are unsure of your benefits eligibility, you can find it stated in your offer letter.

Watch the video below to learn more about your benefit options.

Tech Support

Your supervisor will provide information on computer and software needs for your position. If you have any technical issues with your software, network or computer, contact Tech Café, your go-to resource for all technology needs. 

Campus Recreation

Faculty and staff are eligible for discounted membership to Campus Recreation facilities. You will receive an email containing a free, one-month membership. If you decide to purchase a membership, you can elect to pay your monthly fee via payroll deduction.
