Frequently Asked Questions
Can I purchase a guest BruinCard if I am not a UCLA Extension certificate student?
Unfortunately, you cannot. UCLA Guest BruinCards are specially designed to provide an ID card and extend certain services to those who establish a lasting relationship with UCLA Extension. All Extension students, however, can use their enrollment receipts as proof of student status for reduced-cost circulation privileges at UCLA Libraries and discounts at the ASUCLA Computer Store.
I’ve just paid the BruinCard application fee. When can I pick up my card?
Processing of the application takes 7-10 business days. When processing is complete, you will receive an e-mail with instructions for picking up your card.
Does the guest BruinCard make me eligible to receive the same discounts to UCLA athletic and cultural events as degree students at UCLA?
Degree students at UCLA pay a quarterly fee that funds access to a variety of special full-time student services and privileges. UCLA Extension students are not assessed this same fee and so do not have access to the same breadth of discounts and other activities.
What if I lose or damage my BruinCard?
BruinCards can be replaced for a cost of $25. To obtain a BruinCard replacement, visit the BruinCard Center at 123 Kerckhoff Hall on the UCLA campus. If your card was damaged, please bring it with you when you visit the BruinCard Center.
If I withdraw from my certificate program, can I return my BruinCard for a refund?
BruinCard fees are nonrefundable.
