If yes, for what cohort?

Psychology 130: Developmental Psychology Course Completion / Plan

We strongly recommend our students take Psychology 130, the introduction to Developmental Psychology, prior to beginning their first quarter in the ADP cohort. (Note: It is also a required course for the minor and must be taken at UCLA, not at a community college.)

Have you taken 130 already?

  • If you have already completed 130: please enter "Yes," the last name of your professor, and your grade in the course. 
  • If you are currently enrolled in 130 (Winter 2019): please enter "IP."
  • If you have not taken the course yet: please enter "No" and when you intend to take the course (Spring 2019, Summer A 2019, or Summer C 2019).

Language Proficiency

Some of the children at ADP childcare placement sites are bilingual. It's helpful for us to know if you have proficiency in any language(s) other than English (although it's not a requirement!) Please list any languages you speak in addition to English, and for each, indicate level of proficiency.

Note: fluency in additional language(s) is not a criterion for admission.

Off-campus Internship Site Placement Availability

We occasionally have an internship placement 4 miles from campus in the Palms neighborhood of LA (a 20-minute direct bus ride from UCLA). Are you willing to be considered for this placement, if it were to be one of our sites for the upcoming cohort? (Note: not a criterion for admission.)

Work-study Eligibility and Interest 

We occasionally have work-study opportunities for ADP students during or after completion of their 3-quarter courses and internship. NOTE: this is NOT taken into consideration as admissions criteria. Internships and courses are completed for academic credit only. Please indicate whether you expect to be eligible and interested in learning more about work-study opportunities with ADP.
