Title Codes:

Title Codes (also referred to as Job Codes) are the 6-digit numbers assigned to each unique Job Title. Pre-UCPath 4-digit numbers followed by a “U” (Uncovered by a Union) or “C” (Covered by a Union) were used on our campus. Post-UCPath all title codes are 6-digit numbers, typically beginning with “00”. For example, Title Code “006205” is Research Admin 2. Another example, Title Code “007398” is Project Policy Anl 3.

The Job Code Lookup (JCL) allows supervisors, managers, and staff to look up classification information about any title code in the UC system. You can filter information by campus, bargaining unit, personnel program, and other criteria. TCS is maintained by the UC Office of the President (UCOP).
