From the Office of Financial Aid
If you applied for need–based financial aid and met the priority deadline, you will receive notice from Financial Aid shortly. Upon receipt of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) analysis from the processor, the Office of Financial Aid will initiate the award process. Please respond in a timely manner to any requests for additional information so that an aid award can be sent to you as soon as possible. The financial aid offer letter will be sent via the e–mail address you have provided, so please be sure to update us with your current e–mail address. Also make sure your spam e–mail folder or blocker allows this type of e–mail to come through. For additional information, visit the Financial Aid Web site.
Housing and Meal Plans
New students will register for on–campus housing online in June via the MySanDiego Portal Web site. For additional information about the various living options and meal plans, please visit the Housing and Residential Life Web site.
Information regarding registering for classes will be e-mailed to students and will be also be available in the MySanDiego portal after receipt of their enrollment deposit, beginning in late May. A freshman advising questionnaire will be provided, which includes information about courses and schedules. Completing this questionnaire begins the registration process and the matching of students to an academic advisor.
Student Health Center
USD is committed to creating a safe environment for its students. To achieve that goal, the University has instituted a policy requiring all new students to submit verification for meeting these requirements. Registration holds will be in place for all freshman and transfer students and will be removed upon receipt of the completed immunization form.
A letter from the Supervising Physician of the Student Health Center, as well as the Student Immunization Record Form will be available in the MySanDiego portal to all freshmen and transfer students upon receipt of their deposit by Admissions. The record must be completed and verified by the student’s medical provider and is to be mailed directly to the Student Health Center by the deadline to insure that the student’s registration for the following semester will not be held up.
To help you settle in and become acclimated to our community, USD has an extensive New Student Orientation program, called New Student Orientation program. Orientation and move–in will begin on Saturday, August 31, 2013. A separate mailing with detailed information will be sent in July to all students who completed the enrollment confirmation process. Classes for the fall semester begin on Wednesday, September 4, 2013.
The Office of Student Affairs is responsible for coordinating student orientation. You can obtain more information about orientation programs from the Student Orientation website.
