Transfer - New Student Checklist


UCLA is aware of the unprecedented adjustments students, schools, and teachers, have had to make recently. We are sympathetic to the difficulties students are facing while pursuing their classes, and recognize the disruptions this may cause for their emotional well-being, their class availability, final grades and/or their ability to take final exams. We are in the process of investigating options and anticipate having further UC system-wide guidance in the near future. Please check the UCLA COVID-19 site for updates.
