Galveston College Open Positions
Veteran’s Preference in Employment
In compliance with Texas State Senate Bill (S.B.) 805, Galveston College is committed to providing a preference in employment to eligible veteran, disabled veteran, surviving spouse of veteran and orphan of veteran applicants who meet minimum qualifications and any special qualifications for the position to which they apply. The required preferences do not compel the College to appoint a veteran, disabled veteran, surviving spouse of a veteran or orphan of a veteran. However, they do require that those who meet the veteran preference eligibility be appointed when their application assessment, combined with the veteran’s preference, is equal to, or higher than that of a non-veteran.
Selective Service Requirements
HB 558, passed by the 76th Legislature, requires that male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrant aliens residing in the U.S. are required to be registered with Selective Service if they are at least 18 years old but are not yet 26 years old. Persons subject to this law must present proof of compliance or exemption from registration with Federal Selective Service System law in order to be eligible for employment.
