Note: If hired, Academic Advising student staff members cannot hold a residence staff position (e.g. RA, RCC, PHE, Row Manager, etc.) for 2020-21 or enroll in any programs that occur before the start of the academic year in September 2020. We have found that students involved in these programs do not have the time needed to commit to Academic Advising staff responsibilities.
OCs are paid hourly at a competitive student employee rate. Academic Advising will also provide additional financial support to help with the cost of summer housing. OCs are encouraged to live on-campus for the summer and should submit an application for on-campus summer housing if they decide to do so. In addition to hourly pay, OCs also receive compensated early arrival housing into their fall assignment and dining, NSO apparel, and occasional meals throughout the summer. OCs may take 3 vacation days during the summer in addition to designated holidays. Please email Joanie Ly with questions or to learn more about the OC role's overall compensation.
