The New Student Programs office oversees and implements a variety of academic and diversity initiatives within AAP and serves as the entry point for new students. New Student Programs most highly visible programs are AAP Presentations during Bruin Day and AAP Summer Programs. During Bruin Day and AAP Summer Programs, newly admitted students are invited to learn more about UCLA and the academic resources available through AAP. More importantly, students learn about the AAP’s Freshmen and Transfer Summer Programs available to acclimate newly admitted students to the academic rigors of UCLA.

Freshmen and Transfer Summer Programs

AAP offers two academic summer programs – The Freshman Summer Program and the Transfer Summer Program- which prepare students to succeed by exposing them to the rigor and demands of academic life and to undergraduate programs, services, and learning resources.

Students enroll in three University courses that meet UCLA requirements for graduation, and they receive personal attention, in either small groups or individual sessions, from teaching assistants and tutors. They are encouraged to live on campus and to participate in cultural and social events, interact with students of diverse backgrounds, build a network of friends, and broaden their life experiences and world outlook.
