UCPath is a system-wide project launched by the University of California (UC) that modernized its past payroll system, which was over 35 years-old. UCPath introduces new, modern technology that will integrate and standardize payroll, benefits and human resource (HR) systems across the UC system. When UCPath is live at all locations, every employee will have access to the UCPath portal. This is where they will have the ability to view personal job data and payroll information, sign up for direct deposit, update tax withholdings, view or enroll in benefits, see vacation and sick leave balances and more. The UCPath Center is also part of the UCPath project. The UCPath Center is the shared services hub for the UC system where payroll, benefits, and human resources information will be centralized and where staff will provide individualized support to UC employees.
UC ANR is scheduled to transition to UCPath in March 2019, along with UC Davis, UC Irvine and UC Berkely. First paychecks will be processed in April 2019.
UCPath = UC Payroll, Academic Personnel, Timekeeping & Human Resources
UCPath is the largest initiative of its kind in UC history. Data for more than 200,000 employees across 20 locations will be transitioned into the new UCPath system. Each campus has a large volume of complex data that must be moved from local payroll and personnel systems into the UCPath system. With so many employees and unique systems, the project is being completed in phases that allow the UCPath team to focus on deployment groups of four to five campuses at a time.

The new UCPath Portal is an online, self-service tool that gives employees 24/7 access to UC employment information based on their role. Similar to the current At Your Service Online (AYSO) website, UC employees will be able to log into the portal from mobile devices and computers at work or home. They will have the ability to view and update personal information, view paychecks, sign up for direct deposit, update tax withholdings, view or enroll in benefits, see vacation and sick leave balances and more. The UCPath portal has tutorials available for most tasks and users will have the option to submit inquiries through the "Ask UCPath" feature.
