Ensure your continued success at UC San Diego! Second-year students are encouraged to sign up for one of these support programs offering community, advising, and other resources to help you deal with second-year issues, topics, and challenges.

You'll receive access to weekly newsletters, podcasts, and workshops especially created for second-year students.

Both programs require a year-long commitment from fall quarter to spring quarter of your second year.
