ARTS AND SCIENCE PAYROLL PROCEDURES
Welcome to Payroll Services. In this section we will go over the basic procedures for adding an employee to the payroll system, making changes or updates to existing appointments and separations.
NYU, you will hear us refer to the PASS system, which stands for
Personnel Action Submission System. We use PASS to submit, route,
track, and approve requests to change or update employee records.
We aim to complete department requests within 5 business days. However, when a department submits a payroll request to our office we do check personnel budgets. This means the process to appoint someone may take longer than anticipated.
For more information on Adjunct Appointments, please go to the Adjunct Policies and Procedures Page.

Helpful Tips for Successful Appointments
- Review the New Hire Checklist and ensure all documents are attached and properly filled out
- When making changes on a TAD, make sure you select the correct job.
- If you are submitting a new adjunct appointment, please make sure this instructional assignment is also in the courses module of ASIS (Arts & Science Information System).
- If appointing or extending someone on a grant, the appointment cannot go beyond the grant year end date. If it does, please work with SPA (Sponsored Programs Accounting) to extend the grant year end date. Otherwise you can end the appointment earlier or use a temporary account to pay for the appointment beyond the date the grant ends.
- Check your Budgets
- Please check your chartfields to make sure that you are using the account that you want to charge. Using an incorrect chartfield will delay appointments.
- Check your expense budget to make sure you have enough personnel (PS) funds to pay this person.
- If you do not have enough funds in your personnel expense budget for this appointment request, please coordinate with your fiscal analyst to request a budget modification (budmod), or you can provide us with an alternative account for the charges to post.
If there are any questions before submission, please contact our office.
