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.  After the student has applied for a SSN and receives a receipt from the Social Security Administration, they can move on to Step 2.  Students do not have to wait for the card to arrive in the mail before moving on to Step 2.

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 the On-Campus Student Employment Application via Albert.  After submitting the form, students should email Wasserman at for next steps.


Step 3:

Students must download and submit the approved Wasserman On-Campus Student Employment Application Form, completed Employment Confirmation Form and Social Security Number receipt (if applicable) 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.  Students must record their hours worked promptly.
