Information for Supervisors

Learn more about hiring students

As a supervisor, you play an important role in ensuring students have meaningful on-campus employment experiences. Learn what you need to do to ensure their time in your department is beneficial - from the hiring process right through to performance feedback. It’s important to note fine details about items such as confirming your ability to hire, submitting correctly-filled documentation, and supporting your student throughout their employment experience. 

Supervisor process

Application for a Position

  • Supervisors must apply for a position by the posted deadline date.
  • Job descriptions will be reviewed by HR. Supervisors will be contacted if changes are required to their position or to determine eligibility of the position for CSEP funding.
  • You will be notified via email if your position has been accepted or declined.
  • Departments are not guaranteed a position. Please do not offer employment to a student until you receive confirmation that your position was approved.

Posting Positions

  • After receiving confirmation of a position, all approved positions will be posted online for students to apply.
  • Postings will be based on the description provided in the application process.
  • Applications for students who met the CSEP eligibility requirement will be sent to Admin Supervisors via email after the job postings have closed.


  • Students must complete an online CSEP - Financial Assistance Profile prior to applying for a CSEP position so that financial need can be determined.
  • Students cannot be offered a CSEP position until we determine they meet the eligibility:
