Hiring Process

Three step process to be completed by all student employees:

Step 1:

Upon accepted job offer, the supervisor/faculty assistant and student worker must download and complete the School of Law Employment Confirmation Form (PDF: 1.56 MB).  This is a fillable PDF form.  The Pay Rate Form is 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. Per OGS, the Social Security Administration has suspended face-to-face service nationwide until further notice due to the current pandemic. This means that at this time students applying for a Social Security Number due to Curricular Practical Training or on-campus employment cannot apply for a Social Security Number. Students applying for Optional Practical Training can still apply for a Social Security Number by completing the relevant questions on their form I-765. We do NOT recommend applying through the SSA using the "mail-in" option.  Questions can be directed to OGS at 212-998-4720.  You can still move on to Step 2, however, when the Social Security Administration reopens, please apply for a social security card asap and inform Law HR.

Step 2:

All students must register with the New York University Wasserman Center for Career Development 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 and more information.  Pursuant to federal regulations, Step 1 and Step 2 must be completed before or on the appointment start date.


Step 3:

Students must submit the Wasserman On-Campus Student Employment Application Form and 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 Pay Rate form, timesheet completion and bi-weekly pay schedule.  Students must record their hours worked promptly.
