Authorization of Background Check

Volunteers will have a complete background check to include a National Sex Offender Registry at a minimum and criminal record check if needed, before volunteer service begins and annually thereafter. If a volunteer is not a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, this request is reviewed by the International Student and Scholars Office to assure appropriate immigration status.


• An individual who has been convicted of an offense for which he/she appears on the National Sex Offender Public Website or for which he/she must register with the Iowa Sex Offender Registry as required by Iowa Code Chapter 692A may not serve in a volunteer capacity for Iowa State University or affiliated organizations.
