Student employment positions' hourly salaries vary based on a number of factors, including: the hiring department's budget, the student's number of hours worked, the student's current Federal Work-Study funds, etc. Student employment positions pay a minimum of $7.25, which is the current NY State minimum. On average, most student employment positions pay $8-15. Graduate and Doctoral student pay can reach up to $40+/hour.
When classes are in session students may work up to 20 hours per week. When classes are not in session (i.e. Winter Break, Spring Break, and Summer Break) students may work up to 35 hours per week, which is the standard NYU full-time work week.
Students are allowed to hold multiple positions on campus, but may not exceed the maximum hours allowed per week as described above.
Receiving Your Paycheck
NYU Payroll operates on a bi-weekly pay system. Paychecks are sent from Payroll to each NYU department or supervisor every other Friday. Most supervisors distribute checks to their student employees. Students may also opt to enroll in NYU Payroll's direct deposit system. This is separate from the NYU Bursar's tuition reimbursement direct deposit enrollment.
It is extremely important that you give a copy of your approved On Campus Student Employee Application to your supervisor as soon as possible, because it contains vital information that they will need to enter you into NYU's Payroll system. From the time that your supervisor submits your paperwork for processing, it generally takes 4-6 weeks before you receive your first check
