• FEDERAL WORK-STUDY PROGRAM UPDATE

    The U.S. Department of Education has issued guidance for colleges affected by the COVID-19 for students in the Federal Work-Study program.

    On-Campus and Off-Campus FWS Job Locations:

    1. If students are unable to continue their FWS job due to closure, they will continue to get paid for as long as the closure persists, based on their scheduled FWS hours.
    2. If the FWS job location is indefinitely closed, students will be paid for as long as the closure persists, based on their scheduled FWS hours.
    3. If students are unable to continue their FWS job due to being quarantined or incapacitated due to COVID-19 illness, they will continue to get paid for as long as the condition persists, based on their scheduled FWS hours.

    In these three instances, students are required to complete a mandatory CUNY COVID-19 documentation form and the timesheets will be submitted on behalf of the student by the Federal Work-Study Office.

    • If students choose to discontinue their Federal Work-Study position when the job opportunity is still available, they forfeit the award.
