SPA How to Apply

Failure to follow these instructions may result in rejection of your application for employment:

  • If you are interested in employment opportunities with NCCU, you must complete and submit a State Application (PD-107) for employment. Resumes will not be accepted in lieu of a State application. If you are applying for more than one position, submit a separate application for each vacancy. North Carolina State Government requires a signature on all application forms (unsigned applications will not be processed).
  • You must submit a separate state application for each individual position and location for which you are applying. To be considered for a position, you will need to specify the position number and job title for which you are applying. Applications that do not identify the position number and job title cannot be considered. North Carolina Central University (NCCU) recognizes degrees from institutions that are accredited by an agency authorized by the U.S. Department of Education.
  • Effective July 1, 2008 final candidates for employment will be subject to criminal and sex offender background checks. Some vacancies will also require credit or motor vehicle checks. A criminal conviction does not in and of itself prevent an applicant from being employed by the university. The nature of some convictions, however, may cause certain positions to be unavailable to the applicant. Failure to completely disclose information about a criminal conviction on an employment application is considered falsification of the employment application and will result in the applicant not being eligible for employment at the university.
  • The State employs only United States citizens or aliens who can provide proof of identity and work authorization within three working days of employment. Persons subject to Military Selective Service Registration must certify compliance to be eligible for state employment (G. S. 143B-421.1).
  • In order to receive educational credit, degrees must be received from appropriately accredited institutions. Applicants who have obtained their education outside of the United States and its territories must have their academic degrees validated as equivalent to the degree conferred by a regionally accredited college or university in the United States.
  • Applications must be received in the NCCU Employment Office on or by 5:00 pm on the closing date of the position. Applications received after that date will not be referred unless the position is re-posted. Postmarked applications will not be accepted. State applications (PD-107) and job postings can be obtained from all state government offices, local libraries, Employment Security Commission Offices, and via the web. NCCU Human Resources Office makes all official offers of employment for SPA positions.
