The University of California, San Diego, hosts Transfer Admit Day for newly admitted transfer students and their families, 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Saturday, May 20, with the opening sessions in the Price Center Ballroom.
The purpose of Transfer Admit Day is to help transfer students make their final college decision for fall 2006. The event, hosted by UCSD's Office of Admissions and Relations with Schools and the All Campus Transfer Association (ACTA), is an opportunity to discover campus life through academic department presentations, workshops, a visit to their UCSD undergraduate college, an information fair and campus tours. Parking is free. To accommodate students' varying schedules, a welcome address will be given at 8:30 a.m. and again at 9:30 a.m. by Mae Brown, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Admissions and Enrollment Services, and Nikta Namdaran, President of ACTA (All Campus Transfer Association), along with special words of congratulations by Chancellor Marye Anne Fox. Workshops will cover a wide range of popular interests 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 present information on majors, academic expectations and a number of academic opportunities. Visitors can meet with representatives from various campus support services and student organizations at the information fair. Student-led campus tours will provide a closer look at facilities and highlights of the campus.
Transfer Admit Day provides students and their families with 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 20.
