1. When you have been offered a Federal Work-Study position, your supervisor must inform the Financial Aid Office via email at email@example.com. The email must include your full name, your NCC ID#, and the name of the department for which you will be working.
2. The Financial Aid Office will confirm your eligibility for Federal Work-Study and notify you through your NCC email with a copy to your supervisor. At this time, the Financial Aid Office will release the required forms named below to your VerifyMyFAFSA app inside your NCC portal. If you have not created an account in the app VerifyMyFAFSA, you must create your account before attempting to complete any forms. Be sure your account information matches your FAFSA information exactly.
***All required forms must be completed and submitted electronically inside your VerifyMyFAFSA app inside your NCC portal.***
3. Once you have completed the forms, email firstname.lastname@example.org to notify the Financial Aid Office you are ready to proceed to the next step.
You will not be eligible to begin work as a Federal Work-Study student until ALL of the above forms have been completed and submitted electronically to the Financial Aid Office at email@example.com.
If you are receiving unemployment benefits and are also employed in the Federal Work Study (FWS) program, you must notify your local unemployment office that you are working in the FWS program. The New York State Department of Labor considers it willful misrepresentation to collect unemployment benefits without revealing that you are also receiving FWS.
