To complete the online application follow the steps below:
  1. Review the Job Description and Illinois Residential Experience for the requirements and minimum qualifications for all positions you are applying for. The job descriptions posted are for your reference; job descriptions are subject to minor changes for the 2018-2019 academic year. If you do not meet our GPA requirements, the application will not allow you to access it. If you have questions about this, email us at

  2. The online application will go live at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, October 2, 2017 and is open through Monday, October 16, 2017 at 6:59 p.m. sharp. You may work on your application and save it as many times as you'd like. When all the required components have been uploaded as pdfs (only) and completed (including one required essay, a resume, and one online reference form), the SUBMIT button will be automatically enabled on the last page of the application. You must click SUBMIT by the above deadline to have your application be considered. Plan ahead so you have plenty of time to submit it.

If you experience a technical issue with the application please email immediately to report your problem. Please include your First, Last, UIN and the specific problem.

Applications will not be accepted past the deadline. Please make sure you contact your reference well in advance of the final deadline so they have time to complete the easy online reference form on your behalf.  If your reference does not submit the online form on time, you will not be allowed to apply (e.g. your submit button will never be enabled.)
