Our on/off campus housing budget has been derived by, 1) student-reported rent averages in and around the neighborhoods surrounding UC San Diego's campus and, 2) the US Bureau of Labor Statistics CPI. As a student, you are expected to live modestly and within the set budget for the year. Further information about off-campus housing can be found on the UCSD Off-Campus Housing website. In addition, a Market Comparison of the surrounding apartment complexes, can be found on the Housing Dining Hospitality FAQ page.

Licensure and Certification Disclosures

University of California programs for professions that require licensure or certification are intended to prepare the student for California licensure and certification requirements. Admission into programs for professions that require licensure and certification does not guarantee that students will obtain a license or certificate. Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies that are not controlled by or affiliated with the University of California and licensure and certification requirements can change at any time.

The University of California has not determined whether its programs meet other states’ educational or professional requirements for licensure and certification. Students planning to pursue licensure or certification in other states are responsible for determining whether, if they complete a University of California program, they will meet their state’s requirements for licensure or certification. This disclosure is made pursuant to 34 CFR §668.43(a)(5)(v)(C).
