Our staff is comprised of a small group of professionals who oversee a large team of undergraduate students serving as New Student Advisors.

NSA Team Blue works within the NSTP office with the administrative aspects of the program.  They also serve as advisors during the New Parent & Family Orientation sessions. NSA Team Gold serve on the New Student Orientation sessions, providing both advising on academic programs and courses as well as campus services.

If you are a current UCLA undergraduate student, you might consider applying for these positions. Working as an NSA is a highly rewarding experience that can build outstanding professional skills while also developing lasting, memorable friendships!
