Oracle Financial Cloud Update 

UC San Diego will transition to the new Oracle Financial Cloud system on July 1, 2020. As a result, budget indexes will no longer be used for recharge purposes. Our office will now require that departments covering the cost of an ID card are required to provide the new Common Chart of Accounts - specifically, the Project, Task, and Fund (if applicable) numbers. We have created a new Campus Card Request Form, which accounts for this new payment method. Please be sure to use this form effective immediately. 

Campus Card Overview

The Campus Card serves as the official photo identification card and security badge for UC San Diego. In addition, it can serve as a door access key to general buildings and high security areas, as well as be utilized by Bookstore, UC Libraries, Imprints and other on-campus services. The Campus Card and all its services are based upon an active employee number. 

Need to find your employee number? Employees can access their employee number via Ecotime and via the new UC Path online portal
