About UCPath

What is UCPath?

UCPath is an acronym for UC Payroll, Academic Personnel, Timekeeping, and Human Resources.

UCPath is the University of California's human resources, academic personnel, benefits, and payroll system for all UC employees systemwide. It replaced UC's nearly 40-year old Payroll/Personnel System (PPS) and was implemented at UCSF in June 2020. UCPath employs new technology to ensure consistency, data integrity and policy compliance across the UC system. UCPath helps us work more efficiently and enables employees to manage essential tasks and view their own payroll and benefits information. Most importantly, UCPath gives us greater operational freedom to focus on UC's core mission of teaching, research and public service.

The UCPath Center   is UC’s shared transactional and service hub managing payroll, benefits and human resources services for more than 200,000 UC employees. The UCPath Center is located in Riverside and processes routine transactions related to payroll, benefits, leave management and workforce administration. The UCPath Center also provides dedicated and responsive customer service support to employees systemwide.

The UCPath online portal provides employees, managers and supervisors with 24/7 access to view and manage payroll, benefits and human resources information. Employees can log into UCPath from any device - desktop, laptop, mobile or tablet. UCPath online replaced most functions previously provided by At Your Service Online (AYSO).

UCPath Governance

Governance refers to structures and processes that are designed to ensure accountability, transparency, and responsiveness. The UCPath governance structures and processes help ensure that the system meets the needs of UC employees by providing a means for locations to give feedback to UCPath management, prioritize changes and upgrades, improve business processes and increase system efficiency over time.  

UCPath is a UC-wide application, and the governance structures include location-specific teams as well as UC-wide groups. Expand each section below to learn about current governance structures.
