Meet your Counselor

Meet your UCLA admission counselor. They visit high schools, community colleges, and participate in college fairs regionally, nationally, and internationally throughout the year.

Our counselors are your first point of contact for all questions, and they are here to help you through the college search, application, and admission process.

For general questions, contact the admission office.

Note: Your counselor is based on the high school you attend, or if home schooled, where you live. If you are a prospective transfer student in California, your counselor is based on the California Community College you attend. If you live outside of California, your counselor is based on the state or country where you attend college.

Meet the admission counselor assigned specifically to you.
