AIP serves students from all six colleges and handles all undergraduate majors. Students planning to participate in the Academic Internship Program should apply at least one quarter before they want to be enrolled in the program. Students planning an out-of-town internship are encouraged to apply two quarters in advance. In cooperation with AIP and UC San Diego’s Programs Abroad Office, students also may participate in, and earn academic credit for, other established internships abroad.
Students can also participate in special national and international programs through AIP including UCDC: Internships in Washington, DC, UCCS: Internships in Sacramento, CA, PRIME: Pacific Rim Undergraduate Experiences, and more.
To be eligible for any AIP program, students must have completed at least ninety units of credit with some related upper-division course work and have a minimum 2.5 GPA at the date of application. For more information contact the AIP office at (858) 534-4355 or visit their website at http://aip.ucsd.edu.
AIP can also be used to satisfy the Sixth College Practicum. Please click here for more information.
UC San Diego offers one-unit seminars to provide first year and upper division students with an opportunity to meet with faculty in a small class environment. They are taught by senior UC San Diego faculty and researchers and are limited to 20 students. The seminars are taught by faculty in their fields of expertise and explore topics of intellectual importance. Students participate in critical discussion with a small group of peers and faculty. Topics differ every quarter.

Students may study abroad through the University of California's Education Abroad Program (EAP), UC San Diego's Opportunity Abroad Program (OAP), and UCSD Global Seminars, earning academic credit toward their degree and gaining valuable international experience.
Education Abroad Program (EAP) participates in over 100 institutions in 35 countries, many for a full academic year, others for a shorter term. Language requirements vary by program.
Opportunities Abroad Program (OAP) provides worldwide options sponsored by institutions other than UC. Eligibility requirements are set by the sponsor and therefore vary widely. In addition to academic programs, OAP advisors can assist students in selecting a wide range of volunteer, internship and educational travel programs.
Global Seminars are UCSD courses taught abroad, over the summer, by UCSD faculty.

The Dartmouth College - Muir College Exchange Program was conceived by Muir's first Provost John Stewart and former Dartmouth Provost Leonard Rieser as a way to enrich the education of students from both colleges. The first exchange of students took place during the fall quarter, 1970, when Dartmouth was still an all-male institution (it became coeducational in 1972). With as many as 10 students from each school swapping places each quarter, the program continues to provide two challenging academic environments distinguished by markedly different climates.
Students must file their applications at the Muir College Academic Advising Office by the end of the third week preceding the quarter they wish to attend Dartmouth. Qualified students will be interviewed by the Dartmouth Exchange Program Reviewing Committee during the fourth week of the quarter.

The UCSD/Morehouse/Spelman Student Exchange Program was officially launched in the fall quarter of 1989. This formal exchange program was developed by Thurgood Marshall College and is open to all UC San Diego undergraduates. Morehouse and Spelman Colleges are located in Atlanta, Georgia. The purpose of the program is to provide a unique opportunity for students to live and study at important institutions of higher learning that are significantly different from their own social and educational environment. Completion of 60 semester or 90 quarter units with a 2.7 or higher grade point average by the end of Spring quarter is required.
