What is UCPath?

UC  Payroll,  Academics,  Timekeeping,  Human Resources 

. . . is an information system being implemented across all the University of California (UC) locations. It will replace a 35-year old payroll system. UCPath will unify and standardize the technology and practices used and designed for managing and processing payroll, benefits, and human resources.

  • View and print earnings statements (pay stubs)
  • Update personal information such as home address
  • View and manage benefits, plus sick and vacation balances
  • View and update tax forms
  • Sign up for, view and change Direct Deposit options
  • Make life event changes (marriage, birth of a child, etc.)
