Welcome to UCLA! We are so excited you have chosen us and are bringing your skills, ideas, and leadership to the UCLA community!

Attending and navigating a large research university, and adjusting to a new academic pace and rigor while adapting to a new environment and culture can generate a variety of emotions, particularly given the world situation today and the reality that you are navigating this new experience remotely. College Learning Communities and the First Year Scholars Program (FYSP) are here to support you through this transition!

Learn more about how FYSP can support you during your first year at UCLA below.

Space in FYSP is limited and participation is by invitation only. If you have any questions, please contact the FYSP Coordinator, Dr. Ana Karen Gomez, at
