On-Campus Employment

If you're interested in working while while you're going to college, search for a job on campus. Career Services advertises all student worker job openings on the CIU JobBoard, our online job database, and on two bulletin boards; one in the Student Center and one located near the Career Services Office in the Administration Building.

Most positions become available at the beginning of the school year and are usually advertised starting in mid-August. Positions are occasionally posted during the semester and before spring semester.

Our Student Employment Program provides valuable experience to students both inside and outside of their field of study. 

Most student worker positions are Federal Work Study (FWS) approved, but the few exceptions will be identified as non-eligible FWS jobs. Both FWS-approved students and those who are not can apply for any advertised student worker job opening. 

The exception is community service jobs that are only for FWS-approved students and will be posted as such.  To determine if you qualify for FWS, contact the Financial Aid Office.

For complete instructions for Student Employment, to download the application to apply for an on-campus job, and to access the link to the CIU JobBoard, go to my.ciu.edu and then to Career Services and then to the For Students page.

 

To be considered for a student worker job, you will need to:

  • Submit a Student Employment Application to the supervisor in the department with the opening

  • Be interviewed and offered the job by the supervisor

  • Provide a personal and previous employer reference for most positions

  • Have a criminal background check (and driver check, if necessary for the position)

  • Get clearance from the Student Life Office

You will need to create a user ID and password to use the JobBoard.

Academic Resources

As a CIU student, be sure to take advantage of a number of academic resources.

Should you need access to a computer to complete your homework assignments, there is a computer lab on the second floor of Ridderhoff.

Tutoring and academic coaching are available in our Academic Success Center. There you can also get study resources on a variety of topics.

Career services can help guide your course of study and serve as a resource center for employment while on campus, as well as well-connected assistance in your career search after graduation.

We encourage everyone to participate in the vibrant student life at CIU. A balance of academic and social activities is key to maintaining mental and physical health and avoiding burnout when studies get intense.

Becoming familiar with the helpful people in student accounting can eliminate stress related to paying for your education. They oversee financial aid disbursements and ensure that each student is current with tuition and any other payments and fees.

The Office of the Registrar is responsible for all academic records, transcripts, academic calendar and policies. Knowing your status with the registrar is a great way to stay on track to graduation day.

The G. Allen Fleece Library provides students with everything from access to news articles and academic journals to help with citations and writing research papers. Oh, and there are lots of good, old-fashioned books to read, too, from a dizzying array of theologians and other Christian writers.

Club Sports

Sometimes students develop a passion for an intramural sport that leads to a demand to play in a league. If you have an interest in starting a club sports team, contact the Athletics Department for help with facilitating the process.

Club sports take you off campus into a league, offering a higher level of competition than intramurals. CIU hosts city league teams at the club level, and they include coaching, tryouts and regular practice schedules.

CIU's city league soccer team occasionally plays in-season games against local colleges.

 

Moore Fitness Center

Stretch, curl, lift and run.

The Moore Fitness Center is headquarters for physical fitness for students wanting to keep their body as sharp as their minds.

Visit the fitness center to keep in shape and relieve stress throughout the school year. You can work out early in the mornings or late at night.

The center maintains long hours for unscheduled recreation, and doubles as the home court for the CIU Rams men’s and women’s basketball teams, and all the intramural teams and club sports.

Along with the gym itself, there’s a weight room and a cardiovascular room with all the latest machines such as treadmills, recumbent bicycles and ellipticals. And for group exercise, energetic aerobics classes can have a room of their own.

The center also has a small library of popular DVD and video game-based workouts. Sports equipment may be borrowed from the front desk for up to one week at no charge. 

The center is free to all students, faculty and staff. Alumni can join for $30 a month or $75 a year.  

Moore Fitness Center Hours

Weekdays:      6 a.m.      -     Midnight

Saturday:         9 a.m.      -     Midnight

Sunday:           CLOSED

Campus Recreation & Fitness

Much like your spiritual walk, maintaining a healthy lifestyle requires dedication and commitment.

The Moore Fitness Center has a full range of amenities, from free weights to a cardiovascular room. Moore Fitness Center hosts CIU intramural sports, too.

Intramural sports are free for all students, staff and alumni and offer a great way to make friends and stay in shape.  A competitive step up from intramurals, club sports also prepare the CIU student for intercollegiate athletics.

Our beautiful, 400-acre campus also features seven miles of trails for jogging, hiking, biking — including great places to stop along the way for a moment of prayer or contemplation, including the Prayer Towers overlooking a pond.
