Hourly Student Worker
Hourly student workers are all paid bi-weekly. Payment is issued every other Friday. This payment is dependent on a few items.
Hourly student workers may have one of three official titles: Assistant, Office Assistant or Technical Assistant. If you have any questions about which titles your student worker should have, please contact Courant Payroll.
Hourly student workers must always provide a valid NYU Wasserman On Campus Student Employee Application form every time they are hired. If you are a proctor, you are likely an hourly student worker, and will need to submit a valid form each time you work.
Additionally, for graduate hourly student workers, they must return a signed appointment letter and Section 195.1 of the New York State Labor Law Form. This appointment letter and Labor Law Form will be provided to the graduate hourly student worker if they are offered a position. The letter and Labor Law Form should be returned before work is started.
Hourly student workers are required to record their timesheets in myTime. Instructions on how to use myTime.
Timesheets are due every other Sunday. Here is the 2020 Timesheet and Payment Date Schedule.
 Timely payment is dependent on whether timesheets are submitted correctly. Timely payment is also dependent on whether timesheets are approved by the timesheet approver on the day after the Pay Period End date, as a rule, by 5 pm.
