Welcome to UC San Diego, New Tritons!

Welcome brand-new Tritons! We feel honored and privileged that you would choose to spend this exciting time in your life with us at UC San Diego. 

First Year Experience and Transfer Year Experience courses are designed to help you develop connections with faculty, staff, resources, upperclass(wo)men from your college and your college cohort. We believe that building these relationships, becoming familiar with college programs and getting involved on campus will help you to make the most of your undergraduate experience. 

*Winter 2021 NOTE: Two TYE courses will be offered in Winter 2021: "ERC 2" and "WARR 2." Both courses will be held virtually (lectures and discussion sections). Although the courses are housed by two specific Colleges, Transfer Students of any College affiliation are invited to enroll in either of these courses. In fact, you have already been pre-authorized to enroll Transfer Year Experience, so all that is needed is to add the course via WebReg at Enrollment may eventually become limited, but currently there are spots available. See the Schedule of Classes for details.
