This department at UCLA is dedicated to bringing academic opportunities to people of color, first-generation college students, non-traditional students, and low-income students. In the summer, students may participate in free residential programs experiencing dorm life. You could even take a real course at UCLA for free to see what it’s like. They offer are programs specifically for parenting students, foster youth, Native and Pacific Islanders, men of color, undocumented students, and students interested in science. During the year, participants are mentored by a current UCLA transfer student with monthly check-ins, and Saturday workshops.
