Fees to students
Seattle University will not host organizations such as pyramid-type organizations and other organizations that require a financial investment, purchase of supplies or equipment or pay a fee as a condition of employment unless such fees are required in accordance with applicable State and Federal laws.
Commission based positions
The organization needs to fully disclose compensation package and business costs incurred up through the first year of employment. This includes salary, duration of salary, training allowance, incentive programs, stock options, commission structure, benefits and any costs borne by the applicant/employee including testing, licenses, classes, travel expenses and equipment.

Requesting information on academic performance
An employer should feel free to seek information directly from an applicant about his/her academic performance and to request a copy of the applicant's transcript if that information is important to the hiring process. The Career Services Office will not provide this information directly to an employer.
Disclosure of company information
Employers using Seattle University's facilities for recruitment activities must register with the Career Services Office and provide complete information concerning conditions of employment, including accurate and clear information on methods of remuneration, within their organization. Employers listing employment opportunities for posting anywhere on campus should clearly disclose such conditions both in writing and when speaking with candidates.
Seattle University has sole discretion regarding access to the Career Services Office of Seattle University and any of its resources by employers, and may decide to prohibit or remove such access to any specific employer, groups of employers, or agent(s)/representative(s) of any employer(s) at any time for any reason. The final approval for employers to utilize the Career Services Office rests with the Executive Director of the Career Services Office and the Vice President for Student Development. If deemed necessary, the Vice President may refer difficult cases to the Executive Team for a final decision.
