Current News and Happenings
Did you accept a Parent Plus Loan?
Complete these steps to ensure your loan disburses:
- Accept the Parent Plus Loan on your Financial Aid Notification (FAN)
- Have your parent complete a Parent Plus Loan application on www.studentaid.gov
- Have your parent complete the Master Promissory Note (MPN) on www.studentaid.gov
- Applying for the loan does not guarantee your eligibility to receive the funds- your parent has to be approved.
- Please allow 3-5 business days for our office to receive your applications and loan documents.
- If your parent is denied for a Parent Plus Loan they can appeal by getting a Co-Signer. If they do not want to seek a Co-Signer, you can submit a petition for re-evaluation requesting to be considered for additional Direct Unsubsidized Loan support.
- Please keep in mind that it will not be for the full amount of the Parent Plus Loan offered.
- Verification Relief: The U.S. Department of Education announced on July 13, 2021 temporary verification relief for students and schools. This has allowed UCLA to “clear” (waive) verification requests for about one thousand UCLA students for the 21-22 academic year. Check your MyUCLA portal to see the status of any document requests for the 21-22 academic year.
- Emergency Grants: Students who have been negatively impacted by the pandemic in 2021, demonstrate exceptional financial need through the FAFSA or DREAM Act application, and can document additional funding needs, should submit the UCLA Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Grant Appeal Form. Awarding priority will go to those who have not already received a HEERF grant.
- Projected Income Appeals: Students and families managing a significant income reduction in 2021 compared to the 2019 income reported on your financial aid application may be eligible to file a 2021-22 Projected Year Income Petition. There are separate appeal forms for parents of dependent students as well as students (and spouses) that have lost income since 2019. Students can explore appeal options by contacting our office.
- UCLA Campus Medical Care Assistance Fund (CMCAF) can provide up to $3,000 to eligible students to help them pay their out of pocket medical expenses. You must be currently enrolled in UC SHIP. You can find more information and an application for the program at: https://www.studenthealth.ucla.edu/insurance/medical-assistance-fund
- Third-Party Access: Students can authorize third-party access to their financial aid information to family members via MyUCLA under "Settings"
- Emergency Grant Reporting: Required Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) reports can be accessed on our HEERF Reports and FAQs page.
