Welcome Bruins! By now you probably have a pretty good idea of how financial aid works at UCLA, but there may be some areas that you still do not understand, or have not experienced in prior years. With that in mind, we want to remind you that our office is dedicated to assisting you in navigating your way through the financial aid process. This leaves you to focus on what’s most important: your education.

The navigation menu on the left will go into more detail about the financial aid process and some of the most frequently visited areas that are important to many of our students.

News and Announcements  

  • Summer Front Desk Service Hours: On Tuesdays and Thursdays the office will be closed in the mornings. The office will be open 1pm-4pm on those days. 
  • Financial Aid and Scholarships wants to remind our students to be careful of scholarship scams, or paying for access to scholarship programs. Please be aware that you should never have to pay for a scholarship application, or for "better" access to scholarships. Legitimate scholarship organizations do not charge students to apply.   
  • If you are planning on participating in one of UCLA's summer academic programs make sure you know what you need to do to receive financial aid for it. Click here for details of when to apply by for your program.
