FAQs

What documents are required as part of the application process?

The college’s application form is required for all open positions—faculty and staff. We cannot process your candidacy without a completed application form. Other documents requested in a job posting are usually necessary to obtain further information that may not be present in an application. Transcripts and curriculum vitae are required for faculty positions.

What are the steps included in the application process?

When your application reaches the college, it is sent to the department for which you have applied or a search committee for their review of your information. The hiring department or search committee identifies those candidates who meet the job qualifications sought and then typically checks references before determining the final pool of candidates to be interviewed.

Will I be informed of my application status on a regular basis?

We will inform all candidates of their status once it is determined. We will do our best to keep you informed in a timely and consistent manner; however, we cannot regularly update you on the status of your application due to the high volume of applications we receive. Although waiting may be hard, please keep in mind that no news is good news, as it means your application is still under consideration.
