On March 16, Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed an Executive Order temporarily closing many public spaces. All academic libraries are included in this order. The Main Library is closed, but we still offer virtual services and many resources do remain available. Please see our Online and Distance Learning resource page for specific Library resources. Reference services are still available via chat and phone. We do have temporary policies for returning/renewing material.

Student Employment Application Form and FAQ

Student Employment Application Form

What happens now that I have submitted my application?

Your application is being processed into a database that is reviewed as needed by the student supervisors within the various units at the MSU Libraries. We receive numerous applications each semester so you may not receive correspondence right away. We urge you to keep applying each semester.

When will I be contacted about an interview?

You will only be contacted if a supervisor wishes to set up an interview.

I made a mistake on my application, can I go back and edit it?

In order to edit an application, follow the steps as if you were submitting an entirely new application. When you get to the application, your old information will be available to edit in the boxes.

Is there anything else I can do?

Keep your availability up to date (if your class schedules changes, be sure to edit your application with your updated availability).

If I apply for the fall semester will my application remain on file for the spring semester?

No, you must fill out a new application each semester.

Where else can I apply for a job?
