Student Assistants

Student Assistants

Student Assistants are enrolled students who have been hired to provide services on a campus. They are paid on an hourly basis on a separate "Student Assistant Payroll" for hours reported on an approved time sheet. Each campus determines their own student assistant jobs and procedures for hiring students but the payroll is processed with a university-wide system with paychecks being issued by the Office of the State Comptroller.

Student Assistants are eligible to participate in the NYS Employee's Retirement System and must be given that opportunity. The only other fringe benefit that they are eligible for is Worker's Compensation. Student Assistants are non-union titles.
