“Bueller, Bueller, Bueller…?”

We all remember that epic scene from the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I doubt schools do roll call like that anymore, but colleges and trade schools need a method for tracking student externships.

Tracking Student Externships the Easy Way

 Tracking time and attendance in class is easy enough, but how do you know if your students are showing up for their clinical externships or internships? Universities, colleges, and trade schools all across the country have discovered the solution to tracking remote student externships and internships with our online time tracking and attendance system. Students use our GPS time clock app or TimeTiles™ to report their attendance and start the time clock. Both methods confirm the students’ locations and ensure that students are clocking in from their intern sites.

No Skipping

Instead of calling roll, pull a report of students who don't show up to their externships. When you track and monitor your student's attendance with our online scheduling system, you can get notified if they don't show up. This is important because students shouldn’t get class credit if they’re singing “Twist and Shout” in the uptown parade. Students can also keep up with their schedules and externship hours with our mobile app.

Life Moves Pretty Fast

And your students move even faster, so you need an online time and attendance system with GPS tracking that can keep up. Let us help track the hours of your student externs and take this task off your board. Sign up for a free 14-day trial today, and it will be the easiest A you ever earned.




In conclusion, effectively tracking student internships is essential for educational institutions and businesses alike to ensure a valuable learning experience and successful transition into the workforce for students. By implementing robust tracking systems, such as specialized software or platforms tailored to externship management, institutions can monitor student progress, assess learning outcomes, and provide necessary support and feedback throughout the externship period. Additionally, clear communication between educational institutions, students, and host businesses is crucial for establishing expectations, addressing concerns, and facilitating a seamless externship experience. Moreover, leveraging technology solutions that offer features like GPS time tracking, task management, and reporting can streamline administrative processes and enhance the overall efficiency of externship programs. Ultimately, by prioritizing effective tracking mechanisms and fostering collaboration between stakeholders, institutions can ensure that student externships serve as valuable learning opportunities that prepare students for successful careers in their chosen fields.

By embracing these solutions, you can simplify payroll processes, reduce administrative burdens, eliminate time theft, and minimize costly mistakes. Invest in an automated time clock system to save time and money while ensuring accurate and efficient payroll calculations.
