Alpha Financials Go-Live Toolkit
Prepare for Day 1 and beyond in Oracle Cloud
Why Here, Why Now
Learn more about why we are replacing the campus' financial system and the benefits of a modern financial system.  
What It Will Mean for UC Merced
The Alpha Financials project is tasked with modernizing UC Merced's financial systems.
An Unprecendented Opportunity
From lab supplies to major construction projects, the Common Chart of Accounts captures it all for our accounting purposes.


Effective January 4, 2021, UC Merced is go-live with Oracle Cloud Financials. All financial transactions will take place in Oracle Cloud and UC Merced will use the new Common Chart of Accounts, replacing the Full Accounting Unit. Please go to the Go-Live Toolkit for resources to support you for day 1 and beyond.
