The Bruin Initiative:

This Fall, we will be utilizing Google Classroom and Zoom, and are open to all students (space-permitting). There will also be opportunities for students to sign up to come to the UCLA campus given that they provide COVID-19 vaccination records. We have so much in store for this program including a much more personalized approach to the college application process. Students will be able to request specific tutors that have experiences that align with their needs and engage in 1-on-1 sessions with them in order to make their stories shine! 


The program will run for roughly 13 weeks to account for the Common Application as well as UC/CSU deadlines. The start date will be October 1st. We encourage interested students to register via this form: https://forms.gle/Q2CX6KW2gyHWXWQt7

Registration is also available on the Bruin Initiative website.
