RISE Center

  • Resilience is often described as the ability to “bounce back” after adversity…but bouncing back up hasn’t been so easy these days. Sometimes resilience is about battling back –digging in a little deeper to regain our motivation and efficacy. With the right tools, armor, and collective resources, this is surely achievable!  We at the RISE Center are committed to fostering and strengthening community and individual resilience at UCLA. 

Undergraduate Students

The Samueli Office of Academic and Student Affairs continues to provide all services virtual/remote. While the office is presently physically closed through January 28, our staff are available during regular office hours via our online and virtual systems.


PNP Grading Option

For Winter 2022, normal policies will be in effect as detailed on the OASA Deadlines and Enrollment Policies webpage:  however,  the deadline to change the grading basis has been extended to Friday, February 11,.2022
Required courses (e.g. math, science, prep for the major, major courses, major electives,sci-tech, technical breadth, Engl Comp 3, ethics, etc)  for all UCLA Samueli School of Engineering majors and minors must be taken for a letter grade (unless the course is graded P/NP only). The engineering faculty voted to revert back to LG only for the majority of engineering department courses effective Fall 2021. This means students do not have the PNP option regardless of major. For engineering students, ONLY courses that are PNP ONLY or General Education (GE) or excess units (not required courses) AND
also have the Student  Option (SO) grade designation (Listed in the Schedule of Classe as may be taken for Letter grade or Pass/Not Pass) may be taken for P/NP if the student is in good academic standing.
