Commencement of Academic Activity

UC San Diego has implemented a new tracking process to monitor commencement of academic activity for all undergraduate level, graduate level, and professional level students. The Department of Education requires that UC San Diego track that a student has commenced academic activity in a class for that class to be counted towards eligibility for Title IV federal financial aid (e.g., Pell Grant, Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans, PLUS loans; see below for more information).
