Choose wisely before committing where to live for your term of study. Rental agreements typically require a month-to-month (most flexible), six-months, or one-year agreement including a 30-day notice to vacate. Be sure to inquire which is suitable for your length of stay and/or budget. Most landlord and/or roommate will require a security deposit, usually 1 month’s rent.

San Diego has a vast public transportation system. Students can ride the trolley, bus, or even hop on the Pacific Surfliner Train that runs from San Diego to Los Angeles in 3 hours. Car services such as Uber and Lyft are popular sources of transportation as well.
If you wish to purchase a car, note that a California Driver License is required after a maximum of 3 months of purchasing the vehicle.
The California Driver License is fairly easy to get and costs about $50. Contact your nearest DMV and get an appointment to take the written test then you will be able to use your own car to pass the driving test.
