UCPATH is a UC wide system transition for HR and Payroll systems. UCPATH is an upgrade that brings UC Davis in to the 21st century with enhanced accessibility for employees, streamlined processes and connectivity across all UC entities. Please check this page regularly for general information, training resources, and exclusive content for OCP units.

UC PATH=UC Payroll, Academic Personnel, Timekeeping and Human Resources

What Should I Do To Prepare?

Per the UCD UCPATH team:

  • Make sure your personal information is current in At Your Service Online
  • Health employees should also review personal information in Employee Self-Service.
  • If you still receive a paper paycheck, sign-up for direct deposit to get paid on payday. If you already use direct deposit, you don't need to do anything.  Please note that paper checks will be mailed to home addresses and no longer will be delivered to home departments.
  • Enroll in Duo multi-factor authentication to access UCPath Online. Health employees will need a second instance of Duo.
  • Submit your timecards on time using existing timekeeping systems. Any delay in timecard submissions could delay your pay. 
OCP Personnel Recommendation: Be sure to save copies of any tax information, employment verification, et cetera. It is especially important to save recent pay statements for comparison as these documents will look different after Go Live.

After Go-Live

After UCPATH goes live, the UCPATH team recommends:

  1. Carefully review your first paycheck and notify your department immediately if something is wrong.
  2. Make sure your personal information converted correctly at UCPath Online.
  3. Split your direct deposit in up to three different accounts at UCPath Online.  
  4. Continue to use At Your Service Online to view past earnings statements and W-2 reports. 


As resources are released and created, OCP Personnel will continue to provide information that may be helpful. Be sure to check back regularly both before UCD UCPATH Go-Live as well as beyond.

UCPATH Training Plan for Employees and Managers

The UCD UCPATH training plans have been recommended for department users, meaning any staff who support on any Human Resources and Payroll  (staff, student and academic) actions. Please note that some of these resources are provided by the UC Office of the President and/or are currently locked for certain campus populations, and access may not be available. After reviewing available reference materials and websites, please let OCP Personnel know as the April 1 Go-Live date approaches (and beyond of course!) what information is needed/helpful.
