The Payroll Office's mission is to serve the University's diverse customer base, in collaboration with The UCPath Center, to provide accurate and timely compensation to all staff, faculty, and student employees in an efficient manner. The Payroll Office will audit tax, deduction, and benefit reports to ensure all withholdings are accurate.

In serving our campus community, we monitor and maintain procedural integrity and compliance with Local, State, and Federal agencies, Collective Bargaining Agreements, University policies, and accounting accuracy.

UCSC Employee Emergency Accrued Vacation Payout Program
A new temporary program is available for eligible UCSC employees who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of the summer 2020 wildfires in California. The program allows eligible employees to request a one-time payout, of up to a maximum of 80 hours, of their available accrued vacation to help meet expenses incurred due to impacts from the fires. Applications for the program must be received on or before Nov. 14, 2020. Program guidelines, eligibility requirements and instructions can be found on the program webpage. You can apply using this Google form.
