Staff Separation


Supervisor: Notify Business Office
Supervisor or designated work director is to notify the business office via the Staff Departure form when learning of a staff departure.

UC San Diego Property List
Please review the property list carefully. You're responsible for returning all items on the list to the appropriate individual. After all items have been returned, submit the completed list to your HR Representative on or before your last day of work. This form is required to finalize your separation from UC San Diego.

Final Paycheck
Your last paycheck will be sent to you via your usual method of pay (direct deposit or check) on your next scheduled pay date. It will include any accrued vacation, comp time, and/or overtime payout if applicable. If a check is mailed to you, it will be mailed from payroll to your home address on your last day of work.

Don't forget to cancel your parking permit. Complete the Parking Cancellation and Refund form (PDF) and bring the completed form and your parking placard to the Gilman or Osler parking office.

Voicemail & Email
Prior to your departure, reset your voicemail password to the five-digit extension number. Check with your supervisor about setting up a forwarding voicemail message and out of office email message. Discuss the disposition of email and network files with your supervisor. Your HR Representative will request email, AD login, business systems and shared drive access be terminated at the close of business on your last day of employment.

Permanent Address
If you have, or will have, a new permanent address, please update your Personal Info by logging in to the UCPath Self Service Portal. Watch this simulation on how to complete the update.

Access to UCPath Self Service Portal
Former employees will have access for 36 months after effective date of termination.
If your separation/termination/retirement took place on or after June 1, 2020 you will have continued access via the UCPath Former Employee portal. Ensure that a personal email address is included in your personal information on UCPath Self Service Portal before separating.
If a personal address is entered, you will receive an email from UCPath Center prompting you to register. You will then access the Former Employee Portal by entering a personal email and the last 4 digits of your Social Security Number.
If you did not have a personal email address entered into UCPath, contact UCPath Employee Services directly for assistance in registering for the Former Employee Portal.
