The UC San Diego Career Services Center is funded primarily by student services fees.
Undergraduate students who are new admits or re-admitted to the University and who have paid their UC San Diego Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) fee (or are EOP: SIR waived), or the re-admission application fee may use the services at the Career Services Center one quarter prior to attendance. Newly admitted graduate students are eligible to use the services once they accept admission to UC San Diego.
As an Alumni Career Plus subscriber, recent graduates have complete access to the Career Services Center. A subscription is $80 for six months.
Alumni from other UC campuses may subscribe to Alumni Career Plus at the rate of $150 for six months. This fee allows complete access to the Career Services Center. This is separate from any fee they may have paid to the "home" institution.
Students enrolled in the spring quarter and enrolled or registered for the up-coming fall quarter have complete access to the Career Services Center during the summer.
Students registered for Summer Session at UC San Diego have complete access to the Career Services Center through the summer.
Students in the Opportunities Abroad Program do not pay student services fees to UC San Diego. With certification from the OAP office (International Center), they may use the services at the Career Services Center. Application to on-campus positions may not be made until student services fees to UC San Diego have been paid.
All UC San Diego PhD and Master's students who are continuing students and currently enrolled or conducting research have complete access to the Career Services Center. Students on a leave of absence, or who have withdrawn from UC San Diego, are not eligible.
PhD students who are no longer enrolled but continuing to work on their dissertation, and who are not officially on leave, may continue to use the Career Services Center. These students must provide an email or signed memo from their department's graduate coordinator or advisor, verifying their status. This email or memo should be sent to Albert Lopez at email@example.com or mail code 0330.
To gain access to the Career Services Center during Summer Session, a graduate student who was enrolled in the spring must first register for fall courses. For students not taking fall classes and only conducting independent thesis research, please enroll in your independent research course. Once enrolled, please contact Albert Lopez at firstname.lastname@example.org who will grant you access to all services offered by the Career Services Center for the summer.
Faculty and staff are eligible to utilize the UC San Diego Career Connections program through campus Human Resources which provides a variety of free career development resources. UC San Diego employees who have been laid-off may use the Career Services Center Career Library at no cost.
The following are not eligible to services at the Career Services Center: students and alumni from other higher education institutions (not registered for UC San Diego Summer Session or Alumni Career Plus), irrespective of letters of reciprocity; University Extension or Concurrent students; Post-Docs and others who do not pay UC San Diego registration fees.
