  • Our goal is to extend provisional job offers to candidates on or before Friday, July 3rd (previously Friday, May 1st).
  • Hired applicants must email job acceptance forms to Robyn Leary, Student Services Manager, and must also attend an NSEP session through the Student Employment Office (if they have not worked on campus before)


  • Hired applicants are required to attend mandatory training prior to the start of the semester. Training dates are subject to change, but typically training begins the Wednesday before the semester begins in August, and the Wednesday before the semester begins in January

NSEP Sessions

  • Sign up for an NSEP session if you have not had a job on campus before.
  • You can only attend an NSEP session once you are offered a job.
