POI Guide


POIs are in an unpaid relationship with the university. The titles used are Non-Research Volunteer, Research Volunteer, Employee of Government Agency, Independent contractor, Student Volunteer, and Visiting Scholar/Researcher.

Departments must submit the following to process a POI:

  • Criminal Background Check (when required) - Visit the UTSA CBC web page for more information on the CBC process. 

  • POI eForm – An eForm needs to be completed for all POIs requesting UTSA network access. Please attach the Acknowledgement of Service without Salary to the eForm. All eForms for Visiting Scholars/Researchers or volunteers involved in research will route to ORI for approval as long as the appropriate job code/title is selected. Please make sure the appropriate job code/title is selected to avoid processing delays.

    • Acknowledgement of Service without Salary/POI Form Person of Interest Form

      • Visiting Scholars/Researchers or volunteers involved in research, will need to complete page 2 of the POI form. The form will also need to be approved by the AVP, Office of Research Integrity before Human Resources can process it.

Please note: Human Resources will not enter POIs into PeopleSoft unless they need UTSA network access. If access is required, an eForm should be submitted to HR, so a job record can be entered into PeopleSoft.
