Postings are available online to our students, alumni, and reciprocating students or alumni. Jobs postings may be submitted online.

FIRST-YEAR STUDENT Describe any special regulations pertaining to the recruitment of first year students. For example, are first year students eligible for spring OCI? When are job notices posted during second semester?
First-year students are eligible for spring on-campus interviews. Job notices are viewable by students after October 15 but they are encouraged to not apply until December 1. Our first-year students do not receive permanent grades in all of their classes until the completion of the first year. They do, however, get some mid-term grades and receive Quartile Rankings in all of their classes which indicate how they are performing compared to their classmates. They can provide their mid-term grades along with these Quartile rankings in unofficial transcript form after the beginning of the second semester.
