Welcome to UCLA! We are excited that you have chosen to continue your education at UCLA. With over 3,000 undergraduate international students representing 85 countries, international students are a significant part of our campus community.
All new international students will have two steps in beginning at UCLA: the iStart program which is administered by the Dashew Center for International Students & Scholars and attending a New Student Session.
New Student Sessions
Students coming directly from secondary or high school should attend New Student Sessions for First Year students. Students who have completed 1-2 years of college coursework after secondary school should attend New Student Sessions for Transfer students.
Please choose the appropriate session for your entry level to learn about the sessions and the dates they are offered.
