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.
Current News and Happenings
- If you are enrolled in summer sessions and need financial assistance, please complete a summer aid application on MyUCLA>Finances and Jobs>Financial Aid and Scholarships>Summer Financial Aid Applications
- 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.
- Required Cares Act reporting information can be accessed on our Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund Reporting page.
- Projected Income Appeals: If the Expected Family Contribution on your Student Aid Report is 0, submitting a projected year income appeal for students/parents will not further decrease your EFC. Given that zero is the lowest EFC number, you have been offered the maximum amount of Financial Aid available.
- Students can authorize third-party access to their financial aid information via MyUCLA under "Settings"
