What is UCPath?

UCPath is an initiative launched by the University of California to modernize and optimize our current human resource and payroll system, which is nearly 40 years old. We are leveraging modern technology and centralizing final acceptance of transactions to assure consistency, data integrity and policy compliance across the UC system.


UCPath is rolling! Two more locations are live! The momentum is increasing! On September 23, UCPath went live for UCLA employees, followed by UC Santa Barbara on September 27. We are excited to announce that more than 60,000 employees were successfully converted to UCPath. These deployments included the issuance of 75,000 paychecks in the first monthly and biweekly payroll runs that totaled $317M in gross pay. With the addition of UCLA and UCSB, one-third of UC employees are now being served by UCPath and the UCPath Center, with UC San Diego on target to deploy in fall 2019. Not familiar with UCPath and how it will impact you? It is not too late to find out.

Questions about UCPath?


To ensure conversion programs accurately convert UC San Diego's PPS data to UCPath data, cleanup is essential prior to deployment. Our UCPath Data Conversion Team is collaborating with individuals across campus as they track cleanup progress on 56 identified data items within our legacy systems and gather data that may reside outside PPS or legacy systems. This team will soon start the execution of milestone mock conversions with validation testing, the first is scheduled for July 2018.
