Partnering to Support Student Success

You as parents, and we, as Marshall College staff, share the same goal: to see your student thrive, succeed, and graduate.

The information in this section is intended to help you empower your student to work through any challenges they may experience at UCSD.


The Federal Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) protects students' educational records such as grades and tuition statements.
