Associated Students UCLA (ASUCLA) UCPath

UCPath is the University of California’s priority program to implement a single payroll, benefits, human resources and academic personnel solution for all UC employees replacing UC’s 35-year old Payroll/ Personnel System (PPS). The project will be implemented at campuses and locations in four phases. UCPath deployed at UCOP (Oakland) in November 2015; ASUCLA––along with UCLA, UC Riverside and UC Merced––will adopt the new system as part of the Pilot phase of the project scheduled to “go-live” in December 2017. Explore the UCPath website for more information and news about the system-wide project including Quick Facts and General FAQs.

This page will be updated regularly to provide news and information about ASUCLA’s progress. Feel welcome to ask questions by emailing Karen Noh or Janelle Marcus directly.
