If your background check returns satisfactory results, the Background Check team will notify the volunteer service unit that your background check is complete. You will then receive information about the next steps from the volunteer service unit.
If your background check returns results that required additional review and are relevant to volunteer service at OSU, you will receive outreach from the Hiring and Service Risk Assessment Committee (HSRAC) with instructions for the next steps. A final decision will be made by the designated Employee and Labor Relations lead. Additional information about this process is available on the Background Check home page in the Review of Background Check Results and Employment / Service Eligibility Determination section.
If it is determined that you are ineligible for a specific volunteer opportunity, the HSRAC will let you know the decision via email. Such decisions can be appealed, and instructions for how to appeal will be in the decision email.
NOTE: A previous conviction does not automatically prevent an individual from volunteering for OSU. "Satisfactory results" may include a history of conviction(s), which would have gone through the HSRAC individualized assessment review process and resulted in a determination that the conviction(s) did not disqualify an individual for the specific volunteer opportunity.
