We are excited to welcome you to the John Muir College Family!  Your Orientation is your formal introduction to your new environment as a member of the UC San Diego and John Muir College community.  Orientation provides you with the opportunity to meet other students beginning their academic career, interact with Muir College staff, and meet people who serve as important resources as you create your undergraduate experience. The program consists of three parts:

PART I: COMPASS - Your pre-online orientation.
PART II: A Virtual Online Orientation
PART III: An Orientation Online Engagement Experience

Together, these pieces will provide you with the knowledge and campus connection necessary to navigate your first year at UC San Diego.  All incoming students are expected to complete all components.
