Eligibility for Undergraduate Housing ResEd Student Staff Members

All Applicants

  • A cumulative GPA of 2.5 without rounding is required. Candidates who fail to meet the minimum GPA requirement will not be eligible to continue in the selection process. New hires who fail to meet this requirement at the end of Winter Term will no longer be eligible for a staff position. Incoming transfer students will be asked to present their transcripts from previously attended institutions.

    It is the responsibility of the applicant to notify the ResEd Student Staff Selection team at resed-sss@umich.edu regarding any special circumstances (e.g. incompletes, grade changes, etc.) that may influence your cumulative GPA.

    ResEd Student Staff members are expected to maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher throughout their employment, each term and cumulatively.  

  • The Residential College will be consulted for confirmation of academic good standing for all Residential College applicants.

  • Courses selected as pass/fail or credit/no credit will be counted only toward meeting the 24 credit hour requirements; they will have no impact on GPA.

  • Housing Student Conflict Resolution, Housing Student Employment Work Record, University Records, and Office of Student Conflict Resolution records will be checked to determine if an applicant is eligible to be hired for a staff position. Final position offers are contingent upon verification of Criminal Records Check.

  • ResEd Student Staff appointments are for 1 academic year. Students who desire to return for subsequent years are required to participate in an application, interview, and evaluation process annually.

  • Note: Prior to the official start of classes, ResStaff can expect an additional time commitment devoted to both mandatory ResStaff Training and Student Move-in. This differs from the weekly 20 hour commitment when the school year begins.
