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 graduate student. Let's get started!
Fall 2020 Planning During Uncertain Times FAQ
UC San Diego’s Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs has released further information for Fall Quarter 2020 to help our students plan for the year ahead during this time of uncertainty. It includes answers to frequently asked questions about everything from enrollment, online instruction, safety on campus, and housing. We encourage all students to visit that page with common questions  here

In addition to this great resource, we continue to encourage our students to consult ISPO's Coronavirus Information for International Students webpage, as this also includes continually-updated FAQs and information specifically for our international student population, both new and continuing.

As always, if you have questions or concerns you want to discuss with ISPO, we invite you to email us at  inewstudent@ucsd.edu  or attend one of our Zoom Advising Sessions just for for new students, offered Monday-Friday each week.
