All Sponsorships will require a myUH (PeopleSoft) ID number before we can process the sponsorship application.

The Persons of Interest (ePOI) process in PeopleSoft was developed to grant non-UH persons with temporary access to UH resources for the purpose of university business continuity.  The ePOI process establishes what relationship the non-UH person will have with the university while they conduct business on campus.  This is a common interest and goal for various departments on campus, so that we have ample information to verify who is using our campus resources. Participating department systems will receive the ePOI information automatically.

The process for POI requires the following two steps for sponsorship.

Step 1

The sponsor will apply for sponsorship with their college or department business office. The college or department business administrator will fill out the ePOI form in PeopleSoft based on the information collected from the non-UH applicant.

Depending on the type of ePOI, the following information regarding the non-UH person should be available to facilitate the process:

  1. Full name
  2. Date of Birth
  3. Gender
  4. Unique Identifier
    SSN
    OR
    Driver License Country, State and Number
    OR
    Visa/Permit Type and Number
  5. Security Access Type
    009 Person of Interest
  6. POI Type
    Select from list that best describes the applicant
  7. POI Effective Date
  8. Planned Exit Date (Date sponsorship should end)
  9. myUH ID of sponsor
  10. Home address
  11. Home Phone Number
  12. E-mail address

Once the ePOI form is completed, HR will process it and, if necessary, a myUH ID will be generated.  Participating departments who require ePOI information will receive it via automated feeds so they can provide the services that are available to these non-UH individuals. 

Step 2

Complete the Sponsored Personal Account Application for individual accounts.

This form will only be processed after HR has approved the ePOI form.
