Field of Your Choice with LAUNCH
As of Fall 2011, active undergraduate juniors and seniors have the opportunity to receive grant money to cover most course fees for most specialized and professional certificates that Extension has to offer.
Each LAUNCH student works with a coach who acts as a mentor throughout the program. The coach and student meet quarterly to identify their unique skills and career focus, develop those important “soft-skills” employers are looking for in today’s job candidates and act as a resource to services/programs to help make the difference in landing that all-important first job after graduation.
This program is offered in cooperation with UCSD Academic Affairs, Undergraduate Education. The Launch program seeks to compliment a students undergraduate study and transition into the workforce upon graduation.
