It is the employee’s responsibility to incur the cost of any testing required for the position, and there will be no reimbursement for this expense. Failure to successfully complete any portion of the hiring process will invalidate any conditional job offer received. Falsification of, or omission on, any SOCCCD pre-employment paperwork may result in withdrawal of any conditional job offer or termination of employment.

NBU at-will employment: After successful completion of the requirements of Section A, an individual may be employed by the South Orange County Community College District as a short-term, temporary NBU employee. Employment will be on an “if and as needed” basis, as determined by the District. NBU employment is at-will, and either party may terminate this working relationship at anytime.
