The Admissions Requirements

The Preuss School UCSD recruits and enrolls students entering the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade from the greater San Diego area. Eligible applicants must meet three requirements, both at the time of application as well as at enrollment.

The three requirements are:

  1. All families must meet income eligibility criteria as defined by federal guidelines [PDF].
  2. The parents or chief guardians are not graduates of a four-year college or university.
  3. Applicants must submit a completed application by the deadline.

The Admissions Process

Since there will be more eligible applicants than space available, applicants who meet all three requirements will be entered into a lottery and selected at random for admission.

Those who are entered in the lottery but are not selected will be placed on a waiting list in accordance with the lottery. Students on the waiting list will be considered if a space becomes available. However, keep in mind that due to limited space, admission cannot be guaranteed.

Please note that if the waitlisted applicant is not admitted for the academic year they applied for, they will be required to resubmit a new application in order to be considered for the following year.

All 7th, 8th, and 9th grade applicants will initially go to a waitlist. Families will be notified as spots become available. Space in these grades is not guaranteed.
