The selected candidate may be asked to submit a full set of fingerprints and police clearance upon hire. A Police clearance may be obtained from your local police department. This document should state whether or not any criminal charges have been made against you and should be certified with a stamp and/or signature. Police clearances are only valid for one (1) year from date of issue.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I submit my application electronically?
Yes, you may e-mail your application packet. Keep in mind that a valid/original police clearance is required, therefore, it must be delivered or mailed to our office. Ensure that the application and authorization for release of prior employment information are signed.

I am not a permanent U.S. resident. Can I apply for a position?
Based on local CNMI law, the college may hire non-residents for hard-to-fill positions such as instructors, research scientists, and other technical and professional positions provided that the non-resident worker must be a graduate of a college or university in the United States, or those which are accredited by the U.S. accrediting association. Furthermore, this law requires that preference is given to resident applicants. Should there be no eligible resident applicants, non-resident applications may be considered.

Can I use the same application to apply for another position?
If you are applying for two or more positions at the same time, please indicate on the application the announcement number for each position.

Do I need to have my credentials evaluated if they are from a foreign college or university?
Yes, it is our requirement that degrees be from a U.S.-accredited college or university. Foreign degrees may be accepted when accompanied with a credential evaluation report. A listing of authorized evaluators can be obtained at the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) website at
