Students must be enrolled in a minimum of three (3) credits, have half-time equivalency, or have full-time equivalency to be eligible for on campus student employment.
When classes are in session students may work up to 20 hours per week. When classes are not in session (i.e. Winter/Spring/Summer Break) students may work up to 35 hours per week, which is the standard NYU full-time work week. Students may hold multiple positions on campus, but may not exceed the maximum hours allowed per week.
Student employees are paid bi-weekly and are strongly encouraged to enroll in direct deposit through PeopleSync, 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.)
Students who do not enroll in direct deposit must collect their paychecks from their designated pickup location.
It is extremely important that you give a copy of your approved On Campus Student Employee Application to your supervisor immediately in order to be entered 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.
