Using OnCorps

OnCorps is the timekeeping system for Iowa AmeriCorps programs. Timesheets need to be submitted and approved two times per month (every 12th and 27th of the month, supervisors have 2 days to approve the sheets). Pay dates are on the 15th and 30th of each month.

Accessing your account:

  • Use the correct link. Member and supervisors have separate links and each year also has separate links (above).
  • Usernames and Passwords:
    • Usernames are your first letter of your first name and your last name. Example: Katie Zellmer is kzellmer
    • Passwords are all temporarily set to “Building1”
  • You must submit your hours to the nearest 15 minutes where 15 minutes = 0.25 hours.
    • One (1) hour = 1.0; 45 Minutes = 0.75; 30 Minutes = 0.5; 15 Minutes = 0.25
  • Types of hours (Service, Training, and Fundraising)
