UC OATS Sandbox


This article provides an overview of the UC OATS Sandbox. The UC OATS Sandbox is a non-live version of UC OATS. The sandbox is updated daily with the previous day's data. Any changes made in the sandbox will not affect the live version of UC OATS. With the sandbox, you can impersonate a particular faculty member within the sandbox environment by using the "Become" feature. 


To access your campus sandbox:

  1. Locate your campus sandbox and then log in with your campus login credentials
