Newly Admitted Students

Welcome to the College of Letters and Science

Have you been admitted? We are excited to welcome you to UC Davis and are looking forward to helping you make the most of your college experience. 

We compiled a list of helpful resources for you to get started. First, make sure you set up your UC Davis Login ID and create your account in the MyAdmissions portal. Most of your pre-enrollment tasks are linked there. 

Submit your Statement of Intent to Register

Have you decided to attend UC Davis and want to make it official? Be sure to log in to your MyAdmissions portal to submit the SIR before the posted deadline. You must set up a UC Davis Login ID and password before accessing this site.

Be sure to log in to MyAwards to review your financial aid package and accept any awards you may have been offered. You must set up a UC Davis Login ID and password before accessing this site. 

NOTE: The Department of Education has announced they will send information from the 2024-25 FAFSA to schools in mid-March. This may result in a delay in financial aid packaging and offers for the 2024-25 academic year.

Apply for Housing

After you submit the SIR, you may begin the housing application (it takes about 24 hours from your SIR before you can access the Housing application). Be sure to check out the many residence hall options, as well as the Living-Learning Communities.

Complete Aggie 101

Aggie 101 is the first step in the orientation process. Complete Aggie 101 at your own pace, but you should complete this before you begin Aggie Advising. Aggie Advising for freshmen begins May 10, and June 14 for transfer students.

Learn More About Your Major

Want to explore the many majors that are available in the College, or learn more about your declared major? Or perhaps you’d like to research other options for a possible double major. Review our 56 undergraduate majors here. You can also learn about more than 60 available minors. 

Unsure of what you want to study? That's OK! We have many resources to help undeclared and exploring students find their passion.
