  • Clocking in after 9:00am results in loss of 2 hours from the morning hours that day
  • Clocking in after 10:00am results in loss of 3 hours from the morning hours that day

Lab Calculations:

  • - Hours will be calculated by one hour every hour. Five minutes past the hour mark, clock hours will be rounded up to the next hour. Four minutes past the hour mark, clock hours will be rounded back to the previous hour. Example: if a student clocks in at 10:06am, the student will not be given credit for that hour.
