New Employee Orientation for Staff

Find a schedule of new employee orientations and information on who should attend.

New Employee Orientation is held weekly (except when it conflicts with a university holiday). You will be introduced to the university's structure and personnel policies, and find out information about resources and services available to staff.

Due to the UCPath cutover, beginning April 24 for monthly employees and May 20 for bi-weekly employees, new UC Learning Center accounts will not be created until after UCPath data goes live in the UC Learning Center. 

To ensure we are in compliance with new staff employees and academic researchers attending NEO within the first 30 days, Staff Education will manually register employees for New Employee Orientation (and Benefits Orientation) sessions occurring between April 24, 2020 and June 15, 2020. To register, please contact staffeducation@ucsd.edu for assistance.

Registration must be completed by end of day on the Wednesday prior to New Employee Orientation.  

Virtual New Employee Orientation

Campus Human Resources has adjusted operations in response to the current climate surrounding COVID-19 and to support social distancing recommendations. As such, New Employee Orientation has moved to an online portal, effective March 23, 2020.
  • Registrants will be emailed a confirmation with a Zoom invitation link.
