If you have any questions, comments, or inquiries, feel free to fill out the SGSM Human Resources Contact Form and our Human Resources Manager will contact you directly.
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.
Once you have been placed in UCPath, you will need to set up your bank information via direct deposit.
In UCPath, access the Direct Deposit page utilizing one of the following paths:
Income and Taxes > Direct Deposit
Employee Actions > Income and Taxes > Direct Deposit
UCPath Main Page:
Quick Links > Direct Deposit
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 paid 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. Upon receipt, schedule an appointment with the HR Manager and bring your original social security card, so your ID numbers will be entered in UCPath. Please do not email/PDF attachment to the HR Manager. It is against University policy to send sensitive documents electronically.
Students who are paid on an hourly rate will be required to submit a timesheet. You will be paid on a biweekly cycle, every other Wednesday. Visit TRS to view the deadline dates for timesheet submission. Visit the link below.
