Fall 2015 New International Student Orientation

The UC San Diego International Center is excited to meet you in person!  The International Student Orientation is your first chance to experience all that UC San Diego has to offer you. Orientation provides valuable information to ease your transition to campus and life in the USA.  

All new international students in F-1/J-1 status (including transfer students from other U.S. schools) are required to complete an online Digital Orientation course and attend a mandatory international student orientation session.
