The Office of Admissions leads the university’s efforts to identify, recruit, admit and enroll the next generation of UC San Diego Tritons with particular focus on talented, academically capable, California students, representative of the diversity of the people of California. The mission of the office includes increasing the visibility of UC San Diego in California, the nation and world, through marketing and on- and off- campus recruitment activities to prospective first-year and transfer students and their families; school counselors; community college leaders and advisors; community based organizations; and educational organizations serving groups historically underrepresented on our campus. The Office of Admissions hosts more than 80,000 visitors and receives, processes, and reviews over 150,000 applications for admission annually. The office works collaboratively with on-and off- campus partners to achieve university goals.

The Admissions Officer (AO) works in a fast-paced, deadline-driven, high-demand office, which receives in excess of 150,000 applications annually and is engaged in a highly selective admissions process each year. The AO is responsible for outreach, recruitment, reviewing freshmen and transfer applications, admitted student yield, relations with schools and community and family outreach. The position requires professionalism, skills in presenting information, attention to detail, the ability to collaborate – working in teams, and flexibility. Under the general supervision of the Admissions Leadership Team, the AO identifies potential students, and provides information on a variety of admissions-related issues to the general public including, but not limited to: prospective applicants, parents, counselors, community-based organizations, faculty and campus colleagues. The AO fosters and maintains good working relationships with the public and institutions and organizations involved in outreach recruitment, as well as serves as a resource to the external community, such as high school and community college counselors, representatives from other universities and UC San Diego advisors and administrators.

Admission Officers independently review and/or evaluate, domestic and international applications, for admission at both the freshman and transfer level. The AO uses professional judgment and comprehensive knowledge of educational processes, including acceptance of transfer coursework from domestic institutions and international educational systems, in determining whether applicants meet requirements for admission. The AO is expected to perform with a high level of professionalism as a representative of UC San Diego and the University of California among many constituencies, often times conveying complicated and/or sensitive information. The AO serves as a resource to the staff in Admissions and the campus community for issues related to admission to the University.
