Interview and Selection Process

  • Instruct the student to go to HR to complete the background check release form and hiring packet.
  • Complete the Applicant Selection Log to document reasons for non-selection.

Students are not allowed to begin work until all hiring documents are completed.

Rehiring Student Employees

Complete the rehire form for student employees that will continue their status of employment for the upcoming semester. Students are allowed to continue their status of employment if they worked in the immediate preceding Fall or Spring semester and they continue to meet the enrollment requirement.
