the Parent and Family Programs Staff
Greetings Triton families and a
warm welcome to families of new students!
UC San Diego Parent and Family Programs welcomes you to the community. As we’re fast approaching a new academic year, the Triton Family Connection E-Newsletter informs you about campus resources to help you support your student’s college experience. Families often have questions about several things like how students’ studies are supported, the safety of the campus, opportunities to make friends, how to pay the tuition bill, holiday dates and so much more.

Our office is here to help! We believe when parents are informed students benefit. It is our priority to serve as a central resource to you and your family. Take some time to read about how you can reach us and the publications and programs that will inform you about the campus.

We look forward to hearing from you!
