Sponsored Students

A sponsored student is a student whose tuition and fees are paid directly to UC San Diego by an outside private or public agency, such as a corporation, government, educational institution or embassy.

The International Students & Programs Office is proud to provide services for sponsored students and their sponsors. Integral to sponsored student success, participation in campus and community activities allows sponsored students to share their unique perspectives and diverse cultural heritages. Sponsored students also enrich our vibrant campus by creating educational exchanges with their fellow Tritons.
