Am I eligible to participate?
To be eligible for Bronco Corps, students must be enrolled at Boise State in at least six credits as an undergraduate student, or five credits as a graduate student, or in the final semester of a degree program registered in all classes required for program completion.
Students must also regularly attend classes or meet the intent to enroll criteria which means 1) a current student has registered for the next semester, or 2) a new or returning student has current admission status for the next term.
Additionally, students must meet minimum qualifications listed by the hiring employer for each position they apply to.
For international students, there may be additional eligibility requirements depending on your visa status. Please use these resources to determine if you can participate in Bronco Corps as an international student.
I am not a Business Major, can I still participate?
Students from any major or academic program can participate. Most Bronco Corps positions are concentrated on business projects and skills. This means that business-adjacent majors and minors may also find a Bronco Corps position that fits their interests and abilities.
Will I automatically be considered for all Bronco Corps positions?
No. Students are required to apply to individual positions for which they are interested in and qualified. The hiring organization or company will select top applicants to interview.
Students can take advantage of career coaching to help prepare their application materials (resume, cover letter, Handshake profile) and/or practice for their interview. Schedule a career coaching appointment here.
Are Bronco Corps positions paid?
Yes. All positions are paid $12.50 an hour, up to 160 hours per position.
Can I have more than one position?
Students may participate in a maximum of two Bronco Corps positions. However, multiple positions CANNOT be worked at the same time.
Can I work a campus job in addition to a Bronco Corps position?
Yes. However, the hours you work between both your Bronco Corps position and your other campus job(s) must not exceed 29 hours per week. If you are not taking courses over the summer, you can work a combined total of 39 hours per week.
Before accepting a Bronco Corps position, students should carefully consider how they manage their time between multiple jobs, internships and their studies. Most Bronco Corps positions are 5-15 hours per week, which can equate to the same workload as an additional course.
Can I get academic credit for my Bronco Corps position?
Yes, potentially. Academic credit is an option, not a requirement. Students who have been hired for a Bronco Corps position may apply for academic internship credit with completion of the Boise State Internship Application, department approval, and adherence to application deadlines.
How do I apply?
The application process is as simple as find and apply. Students can view all open Bronco Corps positions on the COBE Internship and Job Board. Once you have found a position that you are interested in and qualified for, you will set up or log into Handshake to submit your application to the hiring organization/company. Beyond that, there is no additional application required to take part.
What comes next once I've been hired for a Bronco Corps position?
Although your work will be completed with an external organization, you will be paid by Boise State University and are therefore a student employee. As a student employee you will need to complete an I-9, W4, Direct Deposit form, as well as Compliance Training.
Shortly after you accept your position, Bronco Corps staff will send an onboarding email to your u.BoiseState email address. That email will provide further instructions.
Once hired, you should also connect with your external supervisor to review internship expectations, work schedule, communication modalities, etc.
