Congratulations and welcome from the faculty, staff and students of Sixth College! We are delighted that you will be joining us as a Sixth College student.
Sixth College draws its creative inspiration from the interdisciplinary examination of culture, art and technology. We will be preparing you to become an effective global citizen through the college's academic and co-curricular programs, and teaching you to become innovative, interconnected, and aware.
We have designed our orientation program to introduce you to the abundant possibilities available to you at UC San Diego and through the Sixth College community. The College's staff is committed to providing you a smooth transition as you embark on this exciting new time in your life.
We look forward to meeting you!
Provost, Sixth College
From May through September, there are a number of important tasks for new students to complete to ensure a smooth transition to UC San Diego. Please visit the New Student Site to learn about these tasks and the deadlines you must meet in completing them.
Sixth College has a two-day First Year Orientation program where you get the opportunity to meet and interact with the rest of your entering class. This year's program will be held on Thursday, September 19, and Friday, September 20, 2013. For those students with housing contracts who will reside in on-campus housing, Move-In Day will be held on Wednesday, September 18, 2013.
Additionally, Sixth College provides an optional one-day Parent/Family Orientation program. This year's program will be held on Thursday, September 19, 2013. The program is entirely separate from First-Year Student Orientation, but there is time scheduled families to reconnect with their students at the end of the day.
Sixth College is pleased to welcome you for a one-day Transfer Orientation program where you will get the opportunity to meet and interact with your peers. This year's program will be held on Monday, September 23, 2013.
