New Student Orientations

Each of UC San Diego's six colleges hosts a unique orientation program for incoming freshmen, transfer students, and parents.

Orientation sessions help you:

  • Understand your college and its requirements
  • Meet other new students
  • Learn about important campus resources

Orientation is mandatory – and fun! Check your college's website (in the spring) for dates, costs, and how to sign up for the programs.

Are you an International student? You'll have an additional orientation session at the I-Center.

Note: You will not enroll in classes during orientation. Enrollment occurs later, in a separate online process on WebReg. You can review the WebReg tutorial from the Registrar's Office.
