Get a taste of UCLA life while discovering what Summer in LA has to offer
The future is bright and it starts this summer.
Incoming students have several ways to get a head start at UCLA.
Maximize Your Time to Degree
Don’t wait for fall. UCLA Summer Sessions allows you to start making progress toward your degree right away. Incoming UCLA freshmen and transfers have hundreds of courses to choose from that can satisfy GE and other degree requirements.
Begin Your UCLA Journey in a Supportive Environment
UCLA’s summer programs specifically designed for incoming students offer smaller class sizes and individualized attention from counselors and peer learning facilitators, preparing you for a smooth transition to university life. When fall starts, you will find yourself more than ready to hit the ground running from day 1.
Get Acquainted with Your Future Home
Our sunny Westwood campus is yours to explore in the quieter summer months. Find the best study spots, scope out coffee and dining options, and try out UCLA’s recreational amenities and sport facilities. By the time the rest of your classmates arrive in fall, UCLA will already feel like home.
Make Lasting Connections
Begin building the network of friends and mentors that will guide and support you throughout your time at UCLA. Summer Sessions is your time to meet new friends, seek out faculty you’d like to work with, and start building relationships with staff who will help you succeed and achieve your goals.
