  1. Register online by visiting the online registration form. 

    • If your student is participating in any part of Family Weekend, they must be registered.
    • The online registration only accepts Visa and Mastercard credit or debit card.
    • Unfortunately, we are unable to take any payment information over the phone. All registrations must be processed through the online system. 

Need Help?  If you have any questions, please contact us parents@ucsd.edu or (858) 534-7273.

Online registration closes on Sunday, October 11, 2015 or until capacity is reached (whichever comes first)

Family Weekend activities:

Family Weekend is a campus-wide event and requires a great deal of planning and staffing. Please register for events you plan to attend and carefully read through the schedule of events to plan your weekend. Note: the schedule is subject to some changes.

Registration dates:

  • Registration opens Monday, August 3, 2015
  • Registration will close on Sunday, October 11, 2015 or until capacity is reached (whichever comes first)
  • On-site registration will not be available.
  • Online registration is the primary form by which to register, except for parents and families of international students.

Registration fees:

  • Guest/Family Member (anyone not a UCSD student and 8 years or older): $58 
  • Child (ages 7 and younger): FREE
  • Current UCSD Student: $25

Need-based fee waivers:

We have fee waivers available on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately, we have exhausted all of our Fee Waivers for this year's Family Weekend (as of 9/10/15). We still encourage you to register if you are interested in attending. 

Refund policy:

UC San Diego has an academic culture where students may have an exam during Family Weekend which may impede your interest to attend Family Weekend. Please consult with your student about their academic obligations or any other obligations during this time and agree on whether or not to participate in Family Weekend. Once your family is registered for the weekend, refunds for any reason, will not be granted. We hope this conflict will not stop you from visiting the campus. We have had families come regardless of exams. Please plan accordingly with your family!
