New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is an extensive introduction to the academic and campus life at UCLA. Orientation sessions for first year students (those coming to college directly from high school) are 3 days. Summer 2021 programming will be held online using remote technologies.

Your orientation session includes:

  • Information on choosing a major, course planning, and fulfilling graduation requirements
  • Enrolling in your Fall Quarter classes
  • Workshops and presentations on UCLA’s student services , such as housing, financial aid, and extracurricular activities
  • Presentations and information on graduate programs, professional schools, and career opportunities

This program is for students only. The session dates reflect the programming that will be held over the course of those days; some of the elements will be at scheduled times, and others will be offered to view at your convenience. Please ensure that you are available from approximately 9 am – 6 pm (PDT) on your session dates to participate fully.

Approximately a week before your sessions you will receive an email with details for the session schedule and instructions on how to join your session.

Please read through all the information about your orientation session before signing up. If you have any questions about New Student Orientation, please contact our office at (310) 206-6685, or email us through the MyUCLA Message Center (with UCLA login or without UCLA login).
