Students are paid bi-weekly by check or direct deposit. Paychecks are distributed at the work site every other Friday and cover the hours worked for the previous two weeks. Students are paid on an hourly basis. RIT pays NYS minimum wage for all Level 4 jobs. Employers may pay a higher wage to Level 5 positions as they see necessary.
Direct deposit of wages is highly recommended for student workers. Forms can be obtained from the SEO or Payroll websites or by stopping by the Payroll or Student Employment Offices. Students taking advantage of the direct deposit option can view their paystubs online. For access, students must logon to http://finweb.rit.edu/controller/payroll/, and follow the directions provided.
