• Training for LaGuardia Directors, Managers and Supervisors


    CUNYfirst MSS Module  

    Human Resources has begun training for the CUNYfirst Manager Self Service (MSS) module.  
    The MSS module is designed to assist you in managing your staff.


    What is Manager Self Service (MSS)? 

    In the CUNYfirst system, as a manager or supervisor, you will be able to view and work with your staff members' job and limited personal information. This includes viewing basic information, submitting and approving requests for employee transactions, and the delegation of responsibilities.   


    What are the MSS Functions?

    • Request new position - request a new line (budget approval for position)
    • Transaction delegation - allow someone to perform tasks assigned to you for an approved period of time
    • View employee information - see limited information about employees you supervise
    • Request separation/retirement - begin the separation/retirement process with Human Resources

    Training for Students, Faculty & Staff:


    If you are a Student: If you need in-person assistance, please go to the Enrollment Services Center in Room C-107 (Mon – Thurs: 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Fri: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.)

    Faculty & Staff 

    If you are a Faculty or Staff member at LaGuardia, you can reference online, Self Service Training Guides that are available for you on our CUNYfirst website, as well as attend CUNYfirst Overview (Introductory Level) one hour workshops.

    The Faculty & Staff overview workshops will follow a standard agenda and cover a broad range of information that will enhance your understanding of CUNYfirst. The workshops will also provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions you may have and address any difficulties you may be experiencing. Trainers will listen to individual questions or requests in the workshop and adjust the content as appropriate.
