WELCOME TO UCLA!
Dear New Students,
Welcome to UCLA! We are excited to add our enthusiastic welcome to the many messages of congratulations on your acceptance to the incredible Bruin community that is UCLA! You’re joining scholars, innovators, educators, change agents, artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs, and we are happy to have you with us.
Now that you have accepted your admissions offer, our New Student & Transition Programs (NSTP) department is your next step, and we will be communicating with you often throughout the summer. We are the department that oversees New Student Orientation and Parent & Family Orientation, amongst many other transition programs. Our goal for you is simple – to help you with academic and educational planning (which includes enrolling in your fall quarter courses), while also assisting you with your overall transition to college. At New Student Orientation, you will be advised by New Student Advisors (NSAs), who are current undergraduate students. In addition to receiving support from an NSA, you will also receive the opportunity to: connect with a variety of departments on campus who are eager to be a part of your journey, make meaningful connections with other new students, and learn more about what it means to be a True Bruin.
We are thrilled to welcome you to UCLA, and we look forward to meeting you and your families this summer!
