FAQ for Peer Mentors

How does sign-in for office hours work?

You should go to the google form and help your students sign-in. They should indicate which peer mentor they are working with, which course they need help with, CUNY ID, date and time that they arrived for mentoring

Please use the appropriate link for your campus:

How do I log my hours?

You should keep track of your own hours and enter them every other week directly on RF CUNY. To access the time sheet, navigate to https://rfcuny.org, and log in. From the top menu bar, go to electronic services and click the "Time and Leave" option. A calendar should show up on your screen. Click on the underlined date (always a Sunday) and fill your hours into the timesheet that comes up. Once you have completed it correctly, submit the timesheet for approval.

How do I track my activities each week as a Peer Mentor?

Each week you must fill out a short form describing your work related activities as a Peer Mentor.


I see some information on the project website, in an email, posted in the Peer Mentor Office, or elsewhere that is unclear or wrong. What gives?

If you see something, say something: let any of the program directors know about the issue, and we'll see that it gets fixed.

Why did I receive a request to join a Google Group?

You are part of a google group to allow us to communicate with all peers more easily and efficiently.

Why am I not receiving emails that other peer mentors are receiving?

If you notice this problem, please let Jennifer Valad or Corinna Singleman know.

I haven't received my check, where is it?

If you still haven't received a check, contact Jenn Valad.

How do I sign up for direct deposit?

Use this RF-CUNY PowerPoint for instructions. If it doesn't seem to match the RF-CUNY layout you see, try the sequence below:

  • Navigate to https://rfcuny.org , log in > Electronic Services > My Payroll and Benefits >Employee Services > Payroll Information > Direct Deposit - and follow the directions.
  • Your employee ID should be in the email you received from RF CUNY when you were hired.
