  • Extended Emergency Paid Sick Leave for COVID-19: Please check the UCnet website for more details about the policy and extension regarding the use of Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) (from Sept. 30, 2021, to June 30, 2022). 

  • Walk Me for Funding Entry: In an effort to assist Funding Entry Transactors in UCPath we’ve adopted 'Walk Me' for use with the Funding Entry page. Walk Me is a Digital Adoption Platform that will support users by providing contextual help and making certain fields required on the Funding Entry page in UCPath. This will help ensure that appropriate chartstrings are being entered correctly. This will reduce subsequent clean-up efforts such as Direct Retros and Cost Transfers when chartstrings are entered incorrectly. 

    Should you have any questions, please contact
