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 2023. We will keep you updated on any changes related to University safety guidelines that may impact orientation and provide you with what we know now so you can plan accordingly.

Welcome Transfer Students!

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 July 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-June.
  • Register for orientation by July 28. Visit the Orientation registration page staring in mid-June to select the date of your orientation. Register by the deadline to avoid any academic holds or late fees.
    • Orientation has TWO Parts.
      • Part 1 is a virtual orientation which takes places over Zoom in August. This will include an advising session to help you register for classes.
      • Part 2 is on a separate day, in-person.
      • You will sign up for both parts at the Orientation registration page starting in mid-June.
  • 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 detailed schedule will be available in early September.

All in-person will be in accordance with health and safety protocols. We will update you as information becomes available.
