The application process is entirely online through UCSD's centralized graduate admissions portal. You will need a valid email address to create an account. This email address will be your login name. It will also be the primary line of communication between you and UC San Diego. Be sure to use an email address that will not change: do not use a temporary address. The activation email and additional instructions to complete your registration will be sent to this address once you create your account.
To begin the Application process, just create an account and then select the appropriate Term, Degree, and Program to find the application for the specific program in which you are interested.
International Applicants please note:
The following programs are part-time master's degree programs. If you require a student visa you will not qualify with the below programs (a student visa requires you to be enrolled full-time). This only applies to international students who require a student visa. This does not apply to other international applicants.

- Wireless Embedded Systems
Veterans please note:
UCSD provides an application fee waiver for individuals with US Military Service. Please read the waiver information before deciding to apply. The Financial Aid & Scholarships Office can also provide military-affiliated students assistance on how to use their tuition benefits. Please visit this page for more information.
