UCLA’s College Summer Institute (CSI) is an excellent way for incoming first year students to make a smooth and successful transition into UCLA. For seven weeks before Fall Quarter, CSI students will live on campus with fellow undergraduates while taking courses that satisfy several University requirements.

CSI students can choose from many of UCLA’s most high-demand courses offered in much smaller class settings than during the regular school year, with the added benefit of making friends, study groups and adjusting to university life. Classes are entirely comprised of new students who will live in the same residence hall so making friends, with the support of UCLA New Student Advisors who will live on their floors. CSI students also will learn their way around campus, Westwood, and Los Angeles for a truly successful head start!

CSI includes New Student Orientation (session 104). If you have any questions about the College Summer Institute, please contact our office at (310) 206-6685, or email us through the MyUCLA Message Center (with UCLA login or without UCLA login).
