To help guide you through the adventure ahead, we have created an online training that will map out your journey as an international student here at UC San Diego. There are 8 modules which cover various topics. We have arranged these modules in the order you may encounter them during your program. Pay close attention as these caution modules demonstrate some of the top issues international students face with their immigration status.  

Newly admitted international students are required to access the iTriton Online Training during their first quarter at UC San Diego. Students will be added to the iTriton Online Training on June 1, 2023.

All new Fall 2023 students will have until September 11, 2023 to complete this REQUIRED orientation.
