Student Aids

Student-aid positions are funded through NYIT and are available to all students. These jobs are mainly in the computing labs and at the learning centers. If you receive a student-aid job, you will be awarded a specific amount of money. You work on campus and are paid an hourly rate. When you have earned all the money allocated, you must stop working immediately or ask your supervisor if you are eligible for an award increase. If you receive an increase, you must notify the Office of Student Employment so that your time sheet can be updated.

Departments seeking student aids usually advertise the positions at the end of August. The jobs run from Sept. 1 through Aug. 31 or until your student-aid funds run out.
