Benefits of Participating in JUMP:

  • Ease the transition from high school or community college to UCSD, or undergraduate to graduate school

Unique Mentoring Structure:

  • Ladder/Pyramid structure within fields of study
  • Underclassmen (freshmen and sophomores) are paired with upperclassmen (junior or senior), who are then matched with a graduate student, forming a "mentor group"
