How to Apply to UC San Diego

First Year

You’re a first year, if you’re currently in high school or have graduated from high school and are not enrolled in a regular session at a college or university. Even if you have completed college courses during high school, you’re still considered a first year.

Ready to apply? Check out the First Year Application timeline.

Transfer Student

You’re a transfer student if you’ve been enrolled in a regular session at a college or university after high school, excluding summer sessions. UC San Diego enrolls transfer students at the junior level. Nearly a third of our undergraduate class are transfer students.
