First-Year Registration

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

Got Questions?

Our list of frequently asked questions has answers to the most commonly asked (and important) questions.

We've Got Answers!

What classes do you want to take?

Completing the First-Year Advising Questionnaire is the first step in determining your course schedule. Need help filling out the questionnaire? Our Guide to the First-Year Advising Questionnaire will walk you through the process.

All incoming First-Year students are enrolled in an Learning Community (LC) course. The faculty member teaching this course will be your LC faculty advisor and will help you navigate course selection until you declare your major.
Have a question we haven't answered? We have compiled a contact list of USD offices that are here to help you.
