Fall First-Year Registration

Welcome to the University of San Diego. We are excited to have you join us in the fall and know that you'll likely have some questions as you prepare to come to campus.

Students admitted to start in the Spring of 2017 should direct questions to the admissions office.
Incoming USD freshmen are enrolled in a Fall Preceptorial course. The faculty member teaching this course will become your preceptor, or academic advisor.
The First-Year Advising Questionnaire is the first step in determining what LLC you will be a part of, as well as what your first semester course schedule will be.
Peruse our list of frequently asked questions to find answers to the most commonly asked (and important) questions.
Have a question? We have compiled a contact list of all of our partner offices that are here to help you.
Get all the details for course registration.
All of the dates and resources you'll need over the summer.
