UCLA Checklist By Aimee Kazan

So I did some researching, copy/pasting, and editing. Here should be all the details of everything we really have to take care of before orientation and before enrolling at UCLA. If you don't need any details there's a list with the deadlines at the bottom. ^^ Hope this helps you all~ :D Oh! The link at the below is for a PDF version of it all if you wanna download it. :3 Orientation Check-in begins at 7:45 AM at the west entrance of Sproul Hall. After you have checked into Rieber Terrace and dropped your luggage off in your room, you will want to walk down to Sproul Hall to check into Orientation. If you do not arrive by 5:00 pm on the first day of your session, your session enrollment will be cancelled and you will still be responsible for all fees. THINGS YOU SHOULD BRING

Math Placement Exam The exam will take place the first day of your orientation at 3:30 PM. You may also take the exam during the fall. Follow the following link for dates. Calculators are allowed but will not be provided. The Mathematics Diagnostic Test is a 90-minute multiple-choice exam that tests pre-calculus skills. Students receive the results in a format that includes individual test results for eight specific pre-calculus areas. The result-sheet indicates which skills the student has mastered, which skills require review, and which require substantial review. The test scores are used by the Registrar as one of the criteria for enrollment in Math 1, Math 3A and Math 31A. Test scores are valid for one academic year. Students who have taken the AP AB Calculus exam and received a 4 or lower must take the Math Diagnostic Test. Students who have taken the AP BC Calculus exam and received a 3 or lower must take the Math Diagnostic Test.
