How do I check the status of my application?

The status of your application cannot be shared with you over the phone. However, you may check the status online at anytime. You will be notified by phone or e-mail if you are selected to move forward in the process. You will also be notified by e-mail if a position has been cancelled or filled by another candidate who more closely matched the qualifications of the position.

How long does it take to fill open positions?

The majority of the University's open positions are posted on Sunday and are open for six business days. The University conducts a competitive recruitment for all posted positions to identify and attract a diverse and qualified candidate pool. Time-to-fill depends upon if the position is within of a collective bargaining unit. In some cases, there are contractual requirements on who is selected for a vacant position or included in an applicant pool.

I am nervous to enter my personal information into an online system. Is my personal information safe?

Absolutely safe. Our website does require you to enter personal information including your social security number. But all information submitted is confidential, secure and cannot be viewed by any outside source. Our system provides a layer of security called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to protect your personal data when it is transmitted on the Internet. When SSL is in place, all data is encrypted as it is sent across the Internet. When data is encrypted, it cannot be read by someone monitoring Internet traffic. This is the same security used when you shop on the Internet or do online banking. When you are visiting a Web site that uses SSL, you will notice the URL in the address line begins with "https" instead of the standard "http". Our vendor also employs multi-level Cisco PIX firewalls to prevent external intrusions and ensure the security and integrity of client data.
