Important Note: UCLA has decided to transition all summer courses and programs, including SCIP, to remote learning only. For more information, visit our Updates and Alerts page.

Exceptionally high-achieving students attending a U.S. high school are invited to apply for UCLA's six-week Summer College Immersion Program, designed to provide a real-world introduction to an academic life at UCLA, the nation's #1 public university.

SCIP Participants will have the unique ability to:

  • Create a custom UCLA experience by selecting 1-2 courses from a curated list of undergraduate courses and earn UCLA credit studying alongside UCLA students
  • Enjoy exclusive access to workshops on research, college-level writing, and college admissions
  • Attend special lectures and seminars by UCLA professors and scholars on topics ranging from STEM to the humanities
  • Obtain critical tools for success through thoughtfully designed workshops on leadership skills, resilience, stress management, self-care, and more
  • Build lifelong connections with SCIP peers and network with the UCLA community
