New Student Orientation serves as an extensive introduction to the academic and campus life at UCLA. New Student Orientation sessions for first year students (those coming to college directly from high school) are 2 days.

Your 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 – 7 pm  on your session dates to participate fully.

Approximately three days before your session you will receive an email with details and instructions on how to access the session schedule.

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