Financial Aid

 Financial Aid at the Center for Worker Education

Bridging the physical distance between the City College of New York (CCNY) main campus and our satellite Division is a priority for us. Center for Worker Education (CWE) staff takes great pride in helping CCNY working adult students who have fewer opportunities to attend to administrative matters. Specific provisions are made to assist students in their efforts to meet the costs of higher education. Our office provides greater opportunities for CWE students to communicate with a financial aid advisor in close proximity to where they take classes. We are your liaisons with the primary financial aid office and CCNY’s full comprehensive services.

Due to COVID-19 we are mandated to work remotely to serve you. We will be available to assist you through email or videoconference by request. Please contact the CWE Virtual Front Desk to schedule an appointment. 

During this period all requested documents necessary to process student financial aid must be sent through the CCNY financial aid file drop at:

We are authorized to help by:

2. Reviewing FASFA and all documents to determine eligibility for disbursement of financial aid.

3. Providing individual counseling sessions with students when necessary.

4. Notifying students of inconsistencies and missing information necessary for processing aid.

What we can't do:

1. We are not a full-service financial aid office.

2. We cannot provide direct or immediate processing of documents.

3. We are not the source of all financial aid services and information. We are not the Bursar.
