2021 Residential Assistant Applications

News Story

If you’ve ever thought about becoming a Resident Assistant (RA), now’s your chance! Guidelines and important dates have been posted for the 2021–2022 academic year, so mark your calendars and be sure to apply soon.

Being a Resident Assistant (RA) is pretty great. You get housing and meal plans covered, nice digs, and access to a ton of leadership opportunities that will develop your skills. It’s also an extremely demanding job—one that will necessitate your availability for the students on your floor as well as the entire residence hall that you’re assigned.

If you’re interested in potentially becoming an RA, you’re in luck! Applications are open for the 2021–2022 academic year. The process includes the following:

  • >> Reach out to schedule an information session (PLV Campus) or watch the information session online (NYC Campus);
  • >> Submit an application that includes a resume, responses to short answer questions, and more;
  • >> Pass a grade check (at least a 3.0 GPA for the NYC Campus or a 2.5 GPA for the PLV Campus) and conduct check (students must be in good standing and not on probation at the time of hire); and
  • >> Proceed through the interview process once selected.

The deadline to apply is Monday, November 30, for the PLV Campus and Friday, November 20, for the NYC Campus. To get started, choose your campus:

PLV Campus

While there are no further info sessions available, you can email the RA Selection team to schedule a meeting. Please get in contact with them as soon as possible! The deadline is fast-approaching. There is more information available about how to get started in this process on the PLV Campus RA Selection website.
