Civil Service & Extra Help

Public universities in the State of Illinois are required to classify professional (non-academic), technical, and support staff according to established civil service categories. All staff jobs, except those determined by the Civil Service Merit Board to be administrative/professional in nature, are classified as civil service. To be considered for Civil Service Positions you must complete and submit an application and pass an examination.

Temporary extra help are civil service employees hired on a temporary basis to handle emergent excess workloads within a department. These employees may work up to a total of 900 hours. At that time, the employee must be terminated for at least 30 days before they can be rehired in another extra help position.

Civil service openings are sometimes advertised online; however, you should test for any EIU civil service classification in which you are interested before a vacancy occurs. Read about the hiring process to learn how the hiring system works for Civil Service.
