New Student - Freshman

Welcome to the School of Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine! Congratulations on choosing to pursue your college education at UC Irvine. As a new student, you are required to attend an orientation session. Note that your academic advising session is built into orientation. During your academic advising session, you will have an opportunity to meet our academic counselors and peer academic advisors. Our professional and student staff will help you register for your fall classes.

We strongly encourage you to use the informational links below to assist you with your planning efforts. Again, congrats on your decision to attend UC Irvine. We look forward to working with you.

*Please note that you must attend our academic advising session first before scheduling an appointment with one of our academic counselors.  You'll find most of your questions will be answered at orientation, so you likely will not need an appointment
