Since this SEA Admit Weekend has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and as much as we would have wanted to give every student a real-life college experience, our best option is still connecting with students virtually & in person!
Each day are separate events. The program will be online on Zoom on Saturday and Sunday in person.
Friday will be catered to students who can’t attend in person Sunday. On Sunday, it will be fully in-person at UCLA. See the agenda for more details on the event.
Our program will be hybrid this year and completely FREE of cost.
We will provide transportation to and from UCLA at our pick up locations.

UCLA’s SEA Admit Weekend provides more opportunities to explore your Southeast Asian identity. Along with workshops on a variety of topics, you will also have the opportunity to meet other Southeast Asian admitted and current UCLA students.
Yes! Attending the Weekend is a great way to help you decide whether UCLA is the right school for you.
If attending on Friday, you will be able to meet current UCLA students and other admits virtually! A virtual tour of campus will be held as well as games to socialize and an office hour meeting where you can ask current UCLA students any questions you have!
On Sunday, you will be getting a chance to participate in various activities such as an alumni lunch, Person of Color tour, in-person workshops, and placed in a family system where you will be paired with other admits and current UCLA undergraduates.
That is perfectly fine. UCLA will be holding their annual, in-person Bruin Day where prospective students can come explore everything the campus has to offer. There are also other Diversity Admit Weekend Programs (DAWP) that you may be eligible to attend such as Pride Admit Weekend.
Southeast Asians, specifically Burmese, Cambodian, Hmong, Indonesian, Laotian, Mien, Malaysian, Thai, Vietnamese, as well as Chinese from Southeast Asia, are historically underrepresented at UCLA and other colleges and universities. This is mainly due to our immigration history, with the majority of Southeast Asians arriving in the 1970s and after. Because of this, many Southeast Asians who attend college or universities are first generation students. In order to ensure that our voices are heard, and our struggles and experiences shared, we want to increase the amount of SEA students at UCLA by hosting this special Southeast Asian Admit Weekend. Our goal is to foster a cohesive, educated community to better ourselves, our families, and our community.
We want to personalize your experience. This system applies to admits attending in person on Sunday. In this system, you will be grouped with other admits and two current UCLA undergraduates who can advise you on the UCLA campus, their own experiences transitioning into college, what their day-to-day schedules can look like, and other things they are involved in so you can get a better idea of whether or not UCLA is the college for you!
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get to you as soon as possible!
