New Student Orientation

Welcome to the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) family! To assist you in making a successful academic transition, please use the academic tools and resources below as a guide to help you with registering for your first semester of classes.

Academic Tools and Resources

We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the DAAP Student Handbook. It serves as a valuable resource on the policies of both UC and DAAP. Plus, it will acquaint you with the broad array of services available within the college and campus.

Verify your major requirements with your Degree Audit.
