UCPath = UC Payroll, Academic Personnel, Timekeeping, and Human Resources
UCPath is now live at UCI! This regular executive sponsor message aims to inform the campus community about UCPath-related news and updates.

Project Status Update

UCPath Online became accessible to UCI employees on January 2. The first UCPath pay was issued to monthly employees on January 2, 2020 and to bi-weekly employees on January 8, 2020. Overall, the transition is on track and any issues found are being resolved quickly.
UCI’s new Employee Experience Center (EEC) has been responding to questions about pay, benefits, and UCPath. The EEC also provides access to UCI’s most commonly used applications, including UCPath Online, hundreds of knowledge-based articles, and a dedicated team to answer HR, payroll and benefits-related inquiries and issues. Please call or email the EEC if you have questions or problems.
