York Hall ArchwayTransfer Student Orientation 

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 2021. Mandatory programming events will take place exclusively online. We are continuing to offer a fun and informative orientation experience for everyone, including those who will be with us on campus and those starting remotely. We will also provide optional in-person opportunities as we are able.We will keep you updated here and via your ucsd.edu email address. We can't wait to meet you!

Welcome Class of 2023! We're excited to meet you at orientation. We're here to help you get to know your new home at Revelle College. You'll have Orientation Leaders to serve as your student guide as you learn about your academic, leadership, and involvement opportunities, and meet fellow students, staff, and faculty along the way. This is your chance for a smooth transition to Triton and Revelle Life.

Below you'll find information about orientation sessions, a breakdown of costs, and a link to some frequently asked questions. A couple important notes:

  • Submit your Academic Background on the New Triton Advising site on the Virtual Advising Center by July 2. We want to know a little about you in order to provide proper academic orientation and course recommendations this summer.
  • Review your COMPASS online pre-orientation by July 30. Meet Revelle College and select topics you are interested in learning about once you arrive.
  • Register for orientation by July 30. 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. You will use this tool as a resource for Orientation, so be sure to have it installed when you attend. Please contact us if you have any concerns about the app.
  • 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.
  • Summer Deadlines – View all important deadlines to complete before your arrival

Printable version of the Transfer Student Orientation Schedule will be available in September.

Any mandatory orientation components will be virtual. We are considering in-person events in accordance with health and safety protocols. We will update you as new information arrives. 

Attention International students and International families

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.

Are you a continuing student with questions or concerns?

We understand that many students who attended orientation previously may feel unprepared for returning to campus in the Fall. There will be plenty of opportunities to help transition back to campus! Triton Weeks of Welcome (TWOW) programs and events are designed to reintegrate students to UC San Diego campus.
