How to Use this Website

Welcome! This site is your Student Success Center, where you’ll find specific information about your degree program.

This site is different from your My.SanDiego.edu student portal. The MySanDiego portal is where you access different campus resources (such as your financial aid award, registering for classes, or viewing your degree audit). Here, in your Student Success Center, you’ll find the MSCSE Student handbook, academic calendar, course registration information, and more! Please return often, at least every semester, so that you stay up to date on deadlines, course materials, and other information that is vital to your success.
