A Message from Michael J. Beck, Administrative Vice Chancellor

UCLA Faculty and Staff

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce that UCLA is now officially ‘live’ on our new payroll and human resources system – UCPath.

Today marks a significant milestone for UCLA. Over the last several years, tremendous effort has gone into planning, designing, and testing the UCPath system – ultimately preparing our campus for this day. Through collaboration with our colleagues across the UC system and our committed business partners, UCLA organizations and departments can now start to realize the benefits this modern, integrated technology will bring to our campus.

Now that UCLA is live on UCPath, we all can expect to experience some key changes.


The UCPath Portal. The new self-service portal will allow you to manage your personal data, view your paycheck, access benefits information, view vacation and sick leave balances, and much more.


The UCPath Center. The new customer service support center will now serve as your first point of contact for payroll and benefits questions. You can contact the UCPath Center by visiting the UCPath Portal and clicking on the ‘Ask UCPath Center’ button, or by calling (855) 982‐7284, Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (PST).


The New UCPath Paycheck. Starting in October, your pay check will have a new look and feel as it will be generated from the UCPath system.

While these changes represent a significant administrative achievement for UCLA, we should be reminded that as with any large-scale system implementation, there will be some challenges along the way. Although the team has undertaken extensive efforts to ensure the accuracy of the new system, it is to be expected that some discrepancies will occur based on the size and complexity of the UCLA payroll. With that said, if you see discrepancies in your paycheck or have any questions, please contact the UCPath Center at the website or phone number listed above so the team can help resolve any issues you might have.

As our campus adjusts to this new system, be assured that our project team continues to work in concert with our UC partners across the system to ensure UCPath is a success at UCLA. The UCPath team is committed to promptly addressing any issues that arise, and providing guidance and assistance where needed.

For those who have worked so tirelessly over the years, including the project team, our Business Transformation Office, many subject matter experts, the campus advisory groups, and human resources and payroll staff across the campus, we applaud your efforts and appreciate your steadfast commitment to meeting this important campus and system-wide goal.

Thank you all for your continued support and we hope you join us in celebrating this important accomplishment for UCLA.
