Welcome to Student Government Student Media (SGSM):

KUCI student volunteers will not need to be placed on payroll. However, students who have graduated or are currently not a registered student will be required to be onboarded. If you are new to payroll, I will provide your contact information to UCI Campus Onboarding who will reach out to you for the I-9 process. Once you have been approved.  For details about I-9, see the main SGSM HR page.

If you are an international student, please view the section under INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS.

All KUCI student volunteers will require a mandatory background check/livescan clearance from UCIPD. Please see section for BACKGROUND CHECKS.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at mtoff@uci.edu.

Kind regards,

Miriam Toffelmier
Human Resources Manager

General information

All student volunteers are required to complete a mandatory background check. See BACKGROUND CHECK section.

In addition, two SGSM documents must be completed.  These documents are completed through DocuSign.  The SGSM HR Manager will send you a link to complete the following:

  1. HR Confidentiality Agreement
  2. KUCI Waiver Agreement

Student volunteer positions are non-paid, so you will not be required to be onboarded.

Background Check

All background checks will take place at UCIPD and you will not be responsible for the fees.  Due to COVID-19, UCIPD Livescan Office is currently closed.  UCI Campus Onboarding will reach out to you to schedule a time to be completed online through HireRight.  International students will need to provide your social security numbers before an appointment can be scheduled at UCIPD.  You may need to wait until your new SS card arrives if you are in the process of applying for a SS card.

International Students

If you do not yet have a social security card, please let the HR Manager know once you have been offered the position.  The HR Manager will send you a letter confirming your volunteer position with SGSM.  You will need to take this letter to the UCI International Center to obtain their signature.  Once approved, you will take this letter and all of your important documents (bring your passport, visa, identification, I-20, and I-94) to the Social Security Administration Office (location of your preference).  You will receive your social security card in the mail approximately two weeks after.
