Are you college Ready?

On Saturday, January 28, 2017, UCLA Strategic Partnerships and Community Engagement will be hosting a special program called Get College Ready! targeting 8th-11th grade students and their parents/caregivers. This college knowledge event will inspire students to strive for college and learn what it takes to Get Ready. There will be workshops for students and parents/caregivers about college admissions, financial aid, student panel, etc. The event will be held on the UCLA campus and will be FREE.
