Financial Aid and Scholarships

The total cost of attendance (COA) at UCLA includes tuition, fees and expenses for housing, food, educational materials and transportation. Typical Housing Costs information is compiled by UC Office of the President to give you an idea of housing costs around UCLA.

Your COA budget is determined by the housing option selected on your financial aid application and is used to determine the maximum amount of financial aid that can be awarded. Please inform Financial Aid and Scholarships office if your housing plans change. Your aid will be recalculated.

UCLA can allow certain expenses as the basis for increasing the your COA budget. To review the list of expenses that can be used to increase your budget, please click on the “Changes that affect your cost of education” tab on the "Appeals" page.

Decisions on residence status for tuition purposes are made by the UCLA Campus Residence Deputy. For more information regarding Residence for Tuition Purposes, please visit the Registrar’s Office website.
