Revelle Students CheeringFirst-Year Student Orientation Sessions

Welcome all new students. In light of the ongoing and changing environment due to COVID-19, we have reconstructed the Revelle College orientation experience for 2022. We will keep you updated on any changes related to University safety guidelines that impact orientation and strive to provide you with what we know now so you can plan accordingly.

Welcome Incoming Revellians! We are here to help you get to know your new home at Revelle College. You’ll have Orientation Leaders to serve as your student guides as you learn about your academic, leadership, and involvement opportunities, and meet fellow students, staff, and faculty along the way. This is your time for a smooth transition to Triton and Revelle life.

Here you will find important upcoming deadlines. We will update this page later in the summer with an orientation schedule and reminders.

  • Submit your Academic Background on the New Triton Advising site on the Virtual Advising Center by June 16. We want to know a little about you in order to provide proper academic orientation and enrollment guidance this summer. New Tritons Advising will open mid-May.
  • Review your COMPASS online pre-orientation by July 29. This interactive module helps you navigate Revelle College and UC San Diego. COMPASS opens mid-May.
  • Register for orientation by July 29. Complete COMPASS to be directed to the Orientation registration page to select the date of your orientation. Register by the deadline listed below to avoid any late fees.
  • Download the Revelle App to start exploring Revelle College. This will be a tool you use as a resource for Orientation and your entire time at UC San Diego.
  • Parent & Family Orientation is a separate, optional but encouraged event that requires an invitation from the student. Students can send the invitation on the Orientation Registration page. Parent & Family Orientation will take place virtually in August.
  • Summer Deadlines – View all important deadlines to complete before your arrival

The final schedule will be available in early September.

We are planning a combination of mandatory virtual and in-person events. All in-person will be in accordance with health and safety protocols. We will update you as information becomes available. 

Orientation Dates ~ September 12 - 19, 2022

Orientation is required for all students. Typically, students attend one mandatory virtual and one mandatory in-person session.

Check back for details on dates later in summer.


All new international students (including transfer students from other U.S. schools) must sign up for and attend TWO orientations:

  1. Revelle College First-Year Orientation OR Revelle College Transfer Orientation (selection depends on your new student status)
  2. International Student Orientation Workshops and Webinars offered by the International Students and Programs Office

The International Students and Programs Office in collaboration with the Parent and Family Programs office offer an optional International Parent and Family Orientation program for parents as well.


There's plenty for you, too! Triton Weeks of Welcome (TWOW) programs and events are designed to reintegrate students to UC San Diego campus in the fall. For more information, please visit the Tritons Weeks of Welcome page and follow the Revelle College Instagram page @allthingsrevelle.
