New Student Programs

Welcome Fall 2021 incoming Engineering Transfer Students!

Greetings and welcome new engineering transfer students!  We would like to congratulate you on your acceptance to UCLA Samueli! We are delighted to welcome you to our community and look forward to working with you in the Fall.

As you prepare for the approaching Fall quarter, we want to encourage you to visit the Office of Academic and Student Affairs’ New Undergraduate Students page for information on orientation, advising, enrolling, and other important information you will want to look at.

Additionally, we would like you to view the welcome message (video on the left), you’ll hear about what the Center has planned for you as an engineering transfer student. This includes a brand new Transfer Bridge to UCLA Samueli program specifically for engineering transfer students.  Space is limited and there is no tuition for this program.  We would like to encourage you to apply for this pre-fall program that will help jump-start your success here at UCLA Engineering.
