UC San Diego Extension offers opportunities for motivated learners to pursue an education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Enrollment periods vary throughout the year. Choose from among these options:
Opening the door to one of the world's top research universities, Concurrent Enrollment enables individuals to experience undergraduate and graduate courses at UCSD. Concurrent Enrollment is administered through UCSD Extension in collaboration with UCSD's academic departments. Admittance is subject to faculty approval.
Through a reciprocal arrangement with the University, UCSD Extension offers a limited number of student grants to full-time UCSD students, who may enroll in one course. Each quarter, students can pick up a student grant voucher at the Student Services office, good for up to $500 (students pay anything over that amount).
UCSD undergraduates can jumpstart their transition into the workplace with LAUNCH—a new educational offering designed by UCSD Extension. Ambitious students earn a certificate in their field of choice while working with an expert career coach to help land a job upon graduation.
Bringing together the most advanced knowledge and presentation formats, the Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) is a fully accredited, graduate degree for professionals, conferred by UC San Diego. Under a UC statewide project, the MAS degree credential was introduced to expand career potential and bring academic rigor to professionals in various fields.
