The University of California, San Diego hosts Transfer Admit Day for newly admitted transfer students and their families, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday, May 10, in the Price Center Ballroom.
The purpose of Transfer Admit Day is to help transfer students make their final college decision for fall 2003. The event, hosted by UCSD's Office of Admissions and Relations with Schools, is an opportunity to discover campus life through academic department presentations, workshops, a visit to their UCSD undergraduate college, a student organization and student services information fair, and campus tours. Parking is free.
Transfer students will register and receive an agenda packet between 8:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. To accommodate students' varying schedules, a welcome address will be given at 9:00 a.m. and again at 10:00 a.m. by Dr. Joseph Watson, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs; Mae Brown, Interim Assistant Vice Chancellor of Enrollment Management/Registrar; and other UCSD officials. Workshops will cover a wide range of topics to prepare students for life at UCSD, including career planning and graduate school services, commuter student issues, financial aid, campus academic support services, and more. Academic department representatives will also be available to provide information on majors, academic expectations and a number of academic opportunities. Visitors can meet with representatives from various campus support services at an Information Fair, and also get to know each other at a "transfer social." Student-led campus tours will provide a closer look at facilities and highlights of the campus.
Transfer Admit Day provides students and their families an opportunity to take an inside look at the campus and the many services awaiting them at UCSD. All members of the campus are encouraged to help welcome these students to UCSD on May 10.
