What should students expect once hired for Bronco Corps?
Shortly after a student has accepted a Bronco Corps position, our administrative team will send an onboarding email to the student’s u.BoiseState email address. That email will provide further instructions.
Once hired, students will need to contact their external Bronco Corps supervisor to review internship expectations, work schedule, communication modalities, etc.
Although this work will be completed with an external organization, students will be paid by Boise State University and are therefore student employees. As student employees, they will need to complete an I-9, W4 and Direct Deposit form.
