Remote Learning Options for Non-Resident Students

Remote Learning Options for Non-Resident First-Year Students

Despite the global challenges caused by COVID-19, UC San Diego is very pleased to offer remote learning so that first-year, undergraduate non-resident students, can still start their journey as part of the Triton Family and join their cohort in Fall 2020. Even if students cannot be physically on campus, they can still start in the Fall and begin progress toward their degree. For more information about this remote start option for first year, undergraduate non-resident students, please visit our FAQs page.
