If you are required to undergo certain additional recruitment checks or procedures as part of the job application and offer process (e.g. background checks, credential checks, or visa application procedures), we will use this information as described at https://www.andrews.edu/services/its/data-privacy/recruitment-checks.

We consider the processing of your personal information for the above purposes to be necessary for us to take steps with a view to creating an employment relationship with you. Where we ask for any sensitive information, such as religious belief, campus status, and criminal history, responses will be used for employment decision making. Applications decisions are not automated.
