Participants use the link they receive after registering to "drop in" any time during the Open Office Hours, and due to this informal format, the sessions will NOT be recorded. Additionally, The Graduate Division leadership will participate in the Return to Learn Student Town Halls. You may register for and attend those "live", or watch recordings of past ones here on our website.

No worries. It's casual!

Drop in anytime during the Open Office Hours session.

Students who attend them ask questions about resources for new students, preparing for graduation, and everything in between. UC San Diego’s internal structures are complex. Dean Antony and his team are happy to help you navigate and/or locate them. And please know that the Dean or an associate dean is happy to talk with you one-on-one in a Zoom room, if you’d prefer to speak privately.

Lastly, the Graduate Division welcomes students to reach out at any time with questions or concerns.
