5. When do I see my first paycheck?

The date of your first paycheck is based on your appointment date, which for most graduate assistantships will be a few days before classes begin for the semester in which employment begins. So, for example, if your appointment begins in Fall semester, your appointment begins in mid-August; however, you will probably not receive your first paycheck until mid-September . Plan accordingly. All University employees on the New York State payroll are paid on a biweekly basis. A pay schedule is available from Human Resources Management. Human resources offers you the option of direct deposit, which automatically transfers part or all of your paycheck into a bank account (or accounts) of your choosing.
