A Message from the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars, 

Today (September 27), UCPath went live for UC Davis and UC Davis Health employees. As such, Graduate Studies has compiled a set of instructions that graduate students and postdoctoral scholars should use to verify the accuracy of their employee data in the new system.

Please complete the following steps to verify that your information is correct in UCPath as soon as possible.

  1. Login to the UCPath self-service portal by following the instructions listed on the UCPath website. You will be prompted to set up security questions and complete a voluntary questionnaire.
  2. Confirm that your contact information is correct. If you haven’t already done so, we recommend signing up for direct deposit. Locate your direct deposit enrollment information under the “Income and Taxes” tab.
  3. Review your employee information as it appears in the upper left corner, including your name, title, employee ID, and service date. Only your active job information is visible. For example, fall positions with an effective date of October 1 will become visible in the employee portal on October 1.

What To Do If Your Appointment Information Is Missing

If your appointment information is missing, it is likely that it will be among the fall appointments that the service channels will be populating during the next few weeks of October. However, if you do not have access to the system or visibility of your fall appointment by October 15, it is critical that you contact your hiring department or graduate program immediately.

Postdoctoral leave balances (paid time off and sick leave) may be incorrect, as these balances are scheduled to be updated on September 30.  

For more information about UCPath, visit the UC Davis UCPath website or review the UCPath FAQ for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars on the Graduate Studies website.
