Hiring a student on the Student Assistant Payroll

To hire a student on the Student Assistant payroll, departments must complete and process the following documents/forms to the Payroll Office before a student starts working:

Once the final signatory (Budget Office) has signed off on the Request to Hire a Student Assistant form, the form and all of the supporting documents will be forwarded to the Payroll Office for review and processing. It is the responsibility of the hiring department to insure that all of the forms and supporting documents have been completed and submitted prior to a student working. Missing or incomplete documents and information can adversely effect a student getting paid on time.

Students on a Student Assistant or College Work Study Payroll are paid biweekly every other Thursday.  

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the hiring process, please contact either Yudith Espinal, Payroll Coordinator at 914-251-5905 or Robin Farrell, Payroll Manager at 914-251-6096.

If employees who are involved in the hiring process (for Students, Staff and/or Faculty) within their department wish to be trained in how to complete an I-9, please contact Ricardo Espinales, Assistant Director of Human Resources at 914-251-6086.
