The Transfer Academic Timeline outlines the weeks of the quarter system. You can use this timeline as a general road map for what each quarter looks like up close, a checklist for important dates and deadlines, and/or a place for tips on prioritizing your time and staying academically prepared each week during a quarter. There is also a breakdown of your final year as a transfer.
These are general guidelines, so for exact dates and policies be sure to check the current quarterly calendars and the other terrific resources provided on the UCLA Registrar’s Office Website, such as the schedule of classes, course descriptions, and FAQ. The Registrar’s website also offers a downloadable iCal version of each quarterly calendar so that all important administrative dates and deadlines can be loaded right into your own personal calendar for easy access and reminders. Be sure to utilize this great tool!
It is important that you sit down with an academic and a departmental advisor every quarter to make sure you are on track for graduation and remain informed regarding any other important matters that may arise. It is particularly essential to sit down with an academic advisor if you are in your last year at UCLA –you should do this early, preferable the first quarter of your expected last year.

You can keep track of your academic progression throughout the year by referencing your Degree Progress/Audit Report (DARS) through MyUCLA. The DARS lays out all of the units you have fulfilled so far (including units transferred, UC units finished, and major units) and details what you still need to graduate.
