The salary of a full-time member of the faculty who teaches in a school’s regular fall and spring terms (i.e., a nine-month appointment), or a full-time faculty member in the School of Medicine, College of Dentistry, and College of Nursing who serves the entire academic year, normally is paid monthly in equal installments over twelve months.

In addition to the academic year salary, faculty members appointed on a nine-month basis may receive up to three additional months of summer compensation from NYU-administered sources (e.g., from federal on non-federal research grants). The maximum monthly salary from such sources is one-ninth of the academic year salary. Payment for teaching in the summer intersession, whether paid as additional compensation to regular full-time officers of instruction or to visiting or part-time personnel, is normally made on one or more of the following dates, depending on the duration of the assignment: July 1, August 1, September 1. In compliance with New York State Labor Law 195, at the time of hire NYU provides all new employees (including faculty) with written confirmation of their salary, as well as pay schedules and pay frequency. The law requires that the employee sign the notice as acknowledgment of receipt.

Deductions From Salary

Deductions from the salary check are made for applicable income and other taxes (e.g., retirement taxes) as specified by law; and for applicable annuity, group insurance, disability income protection plan, dental plan, hospitalization and surgical-medical insurance premiums, and other benefits in accordance with individual requirements. Eligibility for benefits varies based on a variety of factors, including whether the faculty member is employed on a full-time versus part-time basis, whether the employee’s benefits are dictated by a collective bargaining agreement, whether the employee is a temporary appointee, the country in which the faculty member is payrolled and/or performing services, and other factors.
