What is parent&family programs at UC San Diego?

Parent & Family Programs at UC San Diego provides opportunities to family members to journey through UC San Diego alongside their student. While your student is on campus, families remain an important ally to the university as we seek to help your student find success academically, socially and personally.

How can the UC San Diego office help you support your student?

Whether you are a family member living locally or abroad and whether your student is in their first or last quarter at UC San Diego, our office helps you navigate campus resources to support your student. Parents and families play an important role in their student’s educational journey.

How is one student’s experience at UC San Diego different from other students?

One student’s experience at UC San Diego will differ from other students, which means the ways in which that student is supported will differ from how other students are supported by their family. Triton Parent & Family Ambassadors share how they support their student’s college experience with other family members and the UC San Diego community.

UC San Diego does not issue paper bills. Instead, SFS sends an E-Bill notice to your UCSD-issued e-mail address when your bill is ready to be viewed and paid. Don't miss a payment!



Decide if your student will be covered by the UC SHIP health insurance or stay on the family insurance.


While all students take classes during the fall, winter, and spring quarters, some students opt in to take classes in the summer. The Academic Calendar is subject to revision.
