Splash 2023 at a Glance

Day of Event April 22, 2023
Location Kaplan Hall, UCLA
Cost Free (lunch provided)
Registration Opens March 27, 2022
Registration Deadline April 21, 2022

Note: If you miss the registration deadline, you can still show up on the day itself and attend classes, provided that you bring the waiver forms below, signed by a parent or legal guardian. However, there will be some extra processing time before you can go to your classes.


Due to capacity limitations this year, we are implementing a two-phase student registration to ensure that we can safely accommodate everyone. The first phase is entering a lottery to participate in/attend Splash. The lottery opens on March 7th, 2022 and will close on April 1st, 2022. Those who have entered the lottery will be given first access to sign up for classes, so be sure to register on our website between the above dates! The second phase is signing up for classes after you are guaranteed admission to the program after the lottery closes. Courses will open for registration April 4th, 2022. Please see below for detailed instructions.


If you didn't enter the lottery, you can still sign up for classes starting April 11th 2022!!


If you're a high school student or homeschooled student between the grades of 9-12, we'd love to have you join us! Our goal at Splash is to cultivate a love for learning by providing students with a large range of diverse classes, from origami and quantum physics, to yoga and American politics. We strongly encourage you to sign up for subjects or classes you may be interested in, but never had a chance to explore until now. With love from the Bruin community, we hope you learn a lot and have a lot of fun!

For reference, here's our course catalog from last year! (We don't have any courses finalized for this year's program just yet, but stay tuned!)

COVID-19 Safety Protocols (updated)

  • Masking is recommended (but no longer required) indoors for individuals who are up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines.*
  • While indoor masking is required for individuals who are not up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines, they may remove their mask to eat or drink provided they are physically distanced from others when doing so.
  • Masking is recommended (but no longer required) outdoors regardless of vaccination status.
  • UCLA affiliates must show their UCLA COVID-19 Symptom Monitoring Clearance Certificate showing “cleared for events and venues” as part of the entry procedure.
  • Non-affiliates must show their symptom survey clearance certificate. Take the survey on the day-of here, and present it to us at check-in.
  • * Up to date on COVID-19 vaccines means boosted, or Fully Vaccinated but not yet COVID-19 booster-eligible. Fully vaccinated means it has been 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series (e.g. Pfizer or Moderna vaccines) or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine (e.g. Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine). You are also considered fully vaccinated if you have finished the series of a COVID-19 vaccine that has been listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization. See LACDPH website for details.


If a class you really really want is filled up, you go to our Class Changes station the day-of and see if you can enroll in that class in case other students didn't show up (no guarantee though!)

Walk-In Programs

During breaks in your schedule, we'll have a variety of walk-in programs available happening in Dickson Court South!
