More than just an ID, it also helps you save.
UCLA Extension certificate students are eligible to purchase Guest Bruin ID cards (called BruinCards) for $10, valid for the duration of your certificate program. A Guest BruinCard can be used to:
- Serve as an optional photo ID
- Access recreation privileges on the UCLA campus for a nominal fee of $50 per quarter
- Purchase discounted TAP cards valid on L.A. Metro buses or Flash Passes valid on the Santa Monica Blue Bus and Culver City lines via the BruinGo! Transit Program
- Deposit money on account with UCLA, then use your BruinCard as a fee‑free debit card at the ASUCLA bookstore, campus food facilities, and various BruinCard merchants in Westwood Village and Santa Monica.
A BruinCard is not required for enrollment at UCLA Extension.
