  • Do not leave the Education or Employment Background sections blank and/or reference "see resume." You can easily copy and paste the information from your resume or vita, and this usually works better because you can spell check in the word processing program!

  • To update or edit your application, click on Manage Applications and choose the application you wish to modify (Administrative, Classified or Faculty). Remember to Save and Continue to Next you must certify your application once again to save the updated information.

  • If a posting requires a Supplemental Application, it will be noted in the Job Details section of the posting.

  • Please read instructions before attaching your documents on the Attach Documents page - you will find that most answers to your questions can be found on that page.

Make sure that you have a confirmation number after you have applied!  This is true regardless of the "path" you take to complete your application.


If you are unable to attach documents, you can fax them to us or bring them into our office and we will assist you. Documents forwarded to us become our property, so if you are sending us your documents, please send photocopies.  These items must be received in Human Resources before the final filing date. 


The fax number and cover sheet to accompany your documents will be available in various places including on the Attach Documents page (during the online application process), in our FAQ link, and in the Human Resources link under Application Attachment Cover Sheet.  


If you are sending your attachments to us for attaching, we recommend that you view the Application Status page after applying to ensure that your attachments have been received.  (Please allow up to five days for documents to be attached.) 


Please keep in mind that it may take 6 to 8 weeks from the closing date before interview decisions are made.  You will be contacted by e-mail or phone whether or not you are to receive an interview.
