Employment Opportunities

All currently registered students can view job postings and apply on-line through MyUAlbany under Campus Life. Follow the link under Campus Employment to Student Assistant jobs (Non Federal Work-Study). You must be registered and have a STUDENT email address to access the site. Students who have accepted Federal Work-study awards should go to Finances on MyUAlbany

Links to other employers on campus are located on the University's employment page under Other Campus Vacancies.

New Hires

Before you can begin working for the first time, an I-9 form (Employment Eligibility Verification) must be completed and on file with Human Resources. Time sheets will not be processed without an I-9. The form must be certified in person with ORIGINAL documents. The acceptable original documents you may present are listed on the back of the form (see page 4 of the I-9 PDF).  Please note that if these documents are stored away at home, you must arrange to have them in your possession before you start working.  International students on F-1 or J-1 visas, working for the first time at the University, or who have a status change, must have their I-9 certified in the Payroll Office.

Retirement Membership

All student employees are eligible for membership in the NYS Employees Retirement System (ERS). Membership, which is optional, requires a contribution of three percent of salary that is deducted from your paycheck. Service credit is prorated for part time employees (all Student Assistants and Work Study employees are part time). Membership may be transferred to other public retirement systems in New York State. If you are currently a member or are interested in becoming a member please contact the University's Benefits Office at 437-4729.

Student Check Distribution

Until further notice, checks and direct deposit stubs for student employees are being mailed by the NYS Comptroller’s Office to the legal/permanent address we have on file, unless the payroll address has been updated with a temporary address. 

View and update your addresses at SUNY HR Self-Service or view your paycheck and the address it is being mailed to at New York State Payroll Online (NYSPO) (or log on via SUNY HR Self-Service).

Students are encouraged to enroll in direct deposit. Want to save the environment? Go to New York State Payroll Online and select 'Go Paperless' to opt out of receiving printed paystubs.
