Hiring Process

Three step process to be completed by all student employees:

Step 1:

Upon accepted job offer, the supervisor, faculty member or faculty assistant must download the updated School of Law Employment Confirmation Form (PDF: 157 KB), complete Part I of the form, and submit it to the student worker to complete the remaining section. The Employment Confirmation Form is a fillable PDF.  Wage Rate Forms are now completed electronically in PeopleSync during Step 3. 

  • Note, international students must apply for a Social Security Number if they do not have one.  Students must follow the Social Security Number instructions provided by the Office of Global Services.  The Social Security Administration has limited in-office hours and there has been delays in securing an appointment.  At this time, you can still move on to Step 2 even if you have not secured an SSA appointment yet or received your SSN card in the mail.

Step 2:

All students must register with the New York University Wasserman Center for Career Development once every academic year and obtain an approved On-Campus Student Employment Application.  For students who have never worked on-campus before, the process also involves completing a USCIS Form I-9 remotely, and tax forms and direct deposit online.  Please visit Wasserman Center On-Campus Employment for instructions on how to submit an On-Campus Student Employee Application online via Albert and how to complete the I-9 process remotely, if applicable.  If you have any questions, you may contact Wasserman directly at or 212-998-4758.


Step 3:

Students must download and submit the approved Wasserman On-Campus Student Employment Application Form and completed Employment Confirmation Form to NYU Law Human Resources via email at before or on the appointment start date.  Law Human Resources will provide information related to the digital Wage Rate Form, timesheet completion and the bi-weekly pay schedule, and if applicable, will remind you to let us know once you've received your SSN receipt and card in the mail.  Students must record their hours worked promptly.
