The Out-of-State Student (OOS) Program is designed to support students from outside of California through their college experience at the University of San Diego.

Out-of-State Student Council
The 2014 Application process has started!
The Out-of-State (OOS) Student Council works to enhance the experience of incoming out-of-state freshmen as they transition to USD. Council members will maintain regular communication with the freshmen from their region and help these students connect with first-year and continuing out-of-state students by organizing events and gatherings. The overall goal of the council is to improve the persistence rate of first-year out-of-state students.
Applications will be accepted in the Center for Student Success (UC-114) from Monday, February 10 through Monday, February 24.
OLÉ! Weekend Dessert Socials
During OLÉ! Weekend, students are invited to attend a dessert hosted by their regional council members. This is a fun event where students will meet their regional council members as well as other new freshmen from their region. Times and locations will be listed here and in the OLÉ! Weekend schedule.
Out-of-State and International Student Dinner (Fall 2013)
The Fifth Annual Out-of-State Student Dinner is the hallmark event of the OOS Student Program. The dinner will be held on Wednesday, September 18th. Students will receive an invitation during OLÉ! Weekend with information on how to register for the dinner.
Welcome Phone Calls
In August, incoming first-year students will receive a welcome phone call from a continuing out-of-state student from their region. This is a great opportunity for incoming students to talk with someone about the transition to college and California, and make a connection with a continuing student on campus.
