Welcome to Student Government Student Media (SGSM):

I will be placing you in UCPath for your paid positions. 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. In addition, I will request approval from your academic department if you have an active paid position with them. This process is mandatory to ensure that your fellowship, TA, or graduate status will not be affected due to this additional paid position with AGS. Graduate Division Office requires this approval. A mandatory background check/livescan is required for all employees. If you have not yet completed one, UCI Campus Onboarding will reach out to you for further instructions. Once you have been approved, I will place you in UCPath. If you currently have an active paid position on campus, I will go ahead and place you in UCPath. You will not need to complete the I-9 process again. For details about I-9, see the main SGSM HR page.

Once you have been entered in UCPath, you must set up your direct deposit – bank information. Please see section under DIRECT DEPOSIT on the main SGSM HR page.

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

Before SGSM can pay you, the following requirements must be completed:
1. UCI Campus Onboarding: I-9 Verification; exception if you currently have an active paid position in UCPath
2. SGSM DocuSign (Criteria Appointment and HR Confidentiality Agreement)
3. Background Check/Livescan

You will be paid on a monthly cycle as based on your academic position; exceptions may apply if you do not have another paid position on campus and /or your academic department is paid biweekly.

If you do not receive your scheduled payment(s), please let me know as soon as possible. If you are onboarded at a later date from your effective start date of appointment, you will receive retroactive payment(s) as UCI Campus Onboarding and UCPath approvals may be delayed.

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

Kind regards,

Miriam Toffelmier
