Transfer Orientation Information


Transfer Orientation is designed specifically to assist you in learning about the resources available at UC San Diego, connect you with other incoming students, and smooth your transition into Seventh College and UCSD.

Seventh College Orientation Experience

New Seventh College students are required to participate in a two-part college orientation experience.

Step I: Enrollment & Academic Planning Webinar

Offered in early August, this mandatory webinar will be Part I of your Seventh College Orientation experience. Seventh College Academic Advisors will provide information on how to prepare for Fall Quarter enrollment and answer your academic questions. A student panel will also be available to share advice on how to approach your first quarter at UC San Diego.

Part II: In-Person Program

The in-person orientation program is designed to orient you to campus and provide an opportunity for engagement in campus life. Throughout the program, small group sessions will be facilitated by a Seventh College Orientation Leader. Transfer in-person programs will be offered on September 19th and 20th.
