On-Campus Employment

NYU has a wide array of on-campus jobs available, such as: administrative assistants, photo imaging technicians, IT techs, phone surveyors, housing resource center assistants, tutors, research assistants, newspaper reporters, medical assistants, gym personnel, sales assistant, etc.

NYU CareerNet, the Wasserman Center's online job and internship database, is a great resource for searching for student employment. While NYU CareerNet lists many available positions, it is not the only way to find and secure employment. We encourage all students interested in working on-campus to call, email, or visit NYU employers of interest to see if they have any openings available.

Register to Work On Campus

On-Campus Employment forms and instructions are available by logging onto Albert and selecting " Wasserman On-Campus Student Employment Registration" at the bottom-right of the screen.

You will need to complete the Initial Appointment Form B on Albert and visit the Wasserman Center in person to have your forms approved, if:

  • You have NOT worked at NYU before
  • It has been more than three years since you have worked at NYU
  • You are a School of Engineering (SOE) student who has NOT worked at NYU/SOE since 12/31/12

You will need to submit the Reappointment Form A via Albert, but are not required to visit the Wasserman Center in person or submit another Form I-9 if:

Required Documents

If you have not worked at NYU before or if it has been more than three years since you have worked at NYU, you must bring in original, signed, unexpired documents within three business days of your start date for I-9 processing. Please note: For students who are 25 and under, NY state requires the use of at least one document during I-9 processing that indicates the student’s date of birth for proof of age. Documents that include the date of birth include the U.S Passport, Permanent Resident Card, Driver’s License, and Birth Certificate.

  • For U.S Citizens and Permanent Resident students, acceptable forms of identification may be found here.
  • For International Students, acceptable forms of identification can be found here. In addition, international students who DO NOT have a Social Security numbers must apply for a card through the Office of Global Services and provide a receipt of application when visiting the Wasserman Center to complete their I-9.

The I-9 must be completed within three business days of your start date. If you do not have the documents handy within that time frame, you cannot work. Therefore, it is important that you bring your documents with you when you visit the Wasserman Center to have your forms approved.

By law, the Wasserman Center is required to see original, signed, unexpired documents in person when completing our portion of the I-9. We cannot accept copies under any circumstances.

New York Wage Theft Prevention Act

Effective 4/9/11, the New York Wage Theft Prevention Act amends and strengthens Section 195 of the Labor Law. Upon hire, all student employees will receive and sign a notice from the NYU hiring department. This notice will include employer information, the employee's rate of pay, frequency of pay, and overtime pay rate.

Professional Expectations

Similar to jobs and internships, professional behavior is expected for all on-campus positions. A successful employee is reliable, listens carefully, works diligently, and ensures that all sensitive information is kept confidential. Confidential information regarding students, alumni, employees, parents, and all departmental activities and correspondence should not be shared with NYU students or the community. In addition, NYU supervisors expect that all student employees work well with others, make contributions to the department, and maintain a positive attitude.

NYU myTime

NYU myTime is a University-wide, web-based timekeeping system that provides NYU with a system for tracking time worked, time off balances, and work study balances (if applicable). It provides administrators, staff, and hourly student employees with online access to vacation, sick, and personal time balances. You should follow the clock in / out procedures designated by the school / unit in which you work.

  • For additional information about myTime including FAQs, training, schedules, etc. please visit the myTime website and review the myTime guide.


Students must be enrolled in a minimum of three (3) credits OR have Full-Time Equivalency to be eligible for On Campus Student Employment.


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 $9 per hour, which is the current NY State minimum wage. On average, most student employment positions pay $9-15 per hour. Graduate and doctoral student pay can reach up to $40+/hour.

  • As of 09/01/2016 the minimum wage at NYU will be $12/hr for undergraduate students and $15/hr for graduate students in applicable departments.


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

Student employees are paid bi-weekly and are strongly encouraged to use NYU Payroll's direct deposit, as it is the fastest, most convenient, and most secure way to receive payroll. Note: this is separate from the Bursar's tuition reimbursement direct deposit enrollment. As an alternative, student employee paychecks can be distributed to your supervisor at your NYU department.  

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
