Hiring Process

Hiring Process

After applying for a course interest list an applicant's materials will be reviewed as hiring needs arise and he/she will only receive notification when there is a change to status such as dismissal from the process or invitation to proceed. An application will remain on the interest list for two years at which time it will expire and the applicant will need to reapply.  

The following is a list of steps (in no particular order) that applicants/materials must pass prior to being hired:

1. Department Review
2. HR Interview (20-30 minutes and does not require travel to Rexburg)
3. Evaluation Course (Online asynchronous two-week course, 7-10 hours per week)  

Applicants may be dismissed from further consideration after any one of these steps.    

Additional Requirements

Instructors with a master's degree or higher will be compensated at a rate of $975.00 per credit taught during the semester and instructors with a bachelor's degree will receive $875.00 per credit.  

New employees are required to complete an online asynchronous training for which they will be compensated $300.00. This training requires a time commitment of 7-10 hours each week. (Note: This is not the same as the Evaluation Course which is a part of the hiring process.)  

All online instructors must have access to high-speed internet, a webcam, and a microphone.  

Online instructors mentor students and facilitate teaching and learning. Instructors are expected to spend 3.5 hours per credit each week fulfilling the requirements of the course. They should support and convey the ideals of the LDS Church, the mission of BYU-Idaho, and the BYU-Idaho Learning Model as they guide students to become faithful disciples and capable leaders.  

Affordable Care Act  

Due to the regulation changes with the Affordable Care Act, individuals who are currently part-time employees for another entity of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are not eligible for part-time employment with BYU-Idaho.
