Housing for Incoming Undergraduates

Parent Portal

January 2018

Hello Parents and Guardians,

As your student crosses the halfway point in the academic year, it is important to update you and provide some essential information to get you thinking about next year.

IMPORTANT 2018-2019 Financial Aid Deadline: March 2, 2018

Students should submit the FAFSA online at fafsa.gov. Students who are not eligible to submit a FAFSA but who are AB540 eligible, can submit the California Dream Act Application at www.CalDreamAct.org
File only ONE application. UCSD School Code: 001317

Room Selection 2018-19

For those students eligible for Room Selection next year, informational emails were sent last week. The Housing Contract and $450 Housing prepayment is due February 13-15. Due to high demand, all deadlines and requirements will be strictly enforced. Deadlines and requirements are not appealable. Make sure your student checks their UCSD email account and the Room Selection Portal for details and deadlines.
