Each New Student Session is an extensive introduction to the academic and campus life at UCLA. New Student Sessions for transfer students (those coming to UCLA directly from another institution) are one day.

Your session includes:

  • Information on your 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. Session programming will be held over the course of the session date; some of the elements will be at scheduled times, and others will be offered to view at your convenience.

Approximately a week before your session you will receive an email with details and instructions regarding the session schedule.

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