Hello New Triton!,

Welcome to UC San Diego! The International Students & Programs Office (ISPO) is excited to welcome you to campus very soon. We are here to help you navigate the ins and outs of your program as a undergraduate student. Let's get started!
Fall Quarter 2020: Enrollment
ISPO understands that our international students have many questions about what enrollment will look like for Fall 2020. In this time of uncertainty with consulate closures and travel limitations, we encourage all students to consult the  UC San Diego Registrar’s FAQs page,  which covers topics such as: 
  • What the enrollment process will look like for Fall 2020 
  • How to register for in-person, hybrid, or online-only courses 
  • Which course types to register for if you aren’t sure whether you can make it to UC San Diego this fall or not 
We also advise all undergraduate students to check with their  college advising offices  directly if they are unclear about the course registration process or what types of courses to enroll in. They are your best source of information regarding enrollment.
