Henriette Ruhrmann  

GERMANY


Studying at UC San Diego is an incredible 

opportunity in every respect. The ample variety 

of classes to choose from gave me the chance 

to focus on subjects which interested and 

challenged me. The professors and staff at 

UC San Diego supported me in reaching my 

objectives. Every person I approached with a 

question has been helpful in every possible 

way, from my professors and TAs to the staff 

at the library or print shop, and of course, my 

academic advisor at UC San Diego Extension 

International Programs. At UC San Diego, 

there are endless opportunities to discover 

interesting research fields and researchers or 

students dedicated to advancing a common 

cause. Studying here has already opened a 

new door, allowing me to take the next steps 

toward my professional goals.

UNIVERSITY AND PROFESSIONAL STUDIES (UPS) $7,800 (12 units)



For additional costs, see page 27.

The University and Professional Studies program provides a flexible study abroad opportunity for academically excellent 

students and professionals.

Universities in many countries count these credits towards their own bachelor’s or master’s degree programs. Transferability is 

at the discretion of the home university and must be verified in advance by the student. 

Program Features:

• 12-week program (per quarter)

• Official transcript of UC San Diego or UC San Diego Extension grades – credit may be transferable to another college     

or university in the U.S. or your home country 

• Regular academic advising sessions 

• Students must achieve above-average final grades in all coursework (“B” or better).

San Diego Gaslamp Quarter



Enrollment is on a space-available basis

Enrollment in all classes is on a space-available basis and requires instructor and/or departmental approval after the student 

arrives. If there are no available spaces, the instructor may require that the student wait for several days to see if any other 

students drop the class before enrolling a UPS student. Many class enrollments are not confirmed and completed until 

the second or third week of the quarter. It is especially difficult to get enrollment approvals for first-choice classes in our 

prestigious Computer Science department.

BRAZIL


When I initially chose to come to UC San Diego, 

my main reasons were its well-known name, 

and the weather in San Diego. The university has 

exceeded my expectations. The campus is really 

amazing, with a cozy, cheerful environment. 

Studying in the Business Essentials program has 

enhanced my business knowledge, especially 

relating to American business practices. After 

UC San Diego, I will finish my degree in Business 

Administration and get a good job. I believe that 

all the new experiences and knowledge gained 

will be applicable in both my professional and 

personal life. The certificate has helped qualify me 

to pursue a successful career.

Frequently Asked Questions for Business certificate programs

1.  Can I apply without    

all the required  

 

documents?



No. You will need to wait to apply until you have all the required documents. The only exception is if you have all the required documents except the 

language score AND you are currently attending the UC San Diego Extension English Language Institute (ELI).  

Only students who attend UCSD-ELI can apply for conditional acceptance to the business certificate programs.

2.  What is conditional  

acceptance?

It means you are provisionally accepted based on all requirements except for the language score. This is strictly for students currently attending a 

10-week English language program at UC San Diego Extension ELI. An acceptable language score is still required before you will be fully accepted.

3.  Is there a deadline to 

apply?

Given the popularity of the programs, it is recommended to submit the application FOUR months in advance. Admission is competitive, and not all 



applicants are admitted to the program. NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED WITHIN THE FINAL TEN DAYS BEFORE A PROGRAM’S START-DATE.

4. Is a car required?

Yes, access to a car or other reliable transportation is required, as some classes (day and/or evening) are located at the off-campus  

UC San Diego Extension facility (University City Center), which has very limited or no public transportation.

5.  Can I add an extra 

quarter after I arrive?

Yes; however, if the student requests and is approved for a longer program, the student must pay a $500 USD Business Program Extension fee, plus 

any additional tuition required for the longer program. However, if the student requests and is approved for a longer program during the first week of 

classes in his/her first quarter, the Business Department will waive the $500 Program Extension fee. 

6.  What is Optional 

Practical Training (OPT)? 

For more information on this work experience option, please see page 12.
