How do I get paid?

All Dual-Degree students will receive tuition remission.

When you are paying your tuition bill to Stern, you will receive tuition remission which processes through the Stern Bursar. You will either receive a reduction in your tuition bill, a reduction in your loans, or a reimbursement check issued by the Bursar's Office.

When you are paying your tuition bill to another school, Stern will transfer the payment to your other school so that you receive tuition remission.

What is the amount of compensation?

Compensation for TF/GF positions ranges from $900 to $3600 per appointment. Payment is dependent on enrollment, course credit load, and other factors. Please see contract for more details. Graders are paid $24.00 per student with a minimum of 25 students. Tutors are paid $24.00/hour.

Can a position be terminated?

Your employment is at will, which means that you or NYU can terminate your employment at any time, with or without cause. NYU can also withdraw or rescind this offer at any time prior to the commencement of work without restriction.

What if I am receiving student loans?
