UCLA Extension offers five programs that are eligible for Federal Financial Aid. To be considered for federal financial aid, you must be enrolled in an eligible program, meet personal eligibility criteria, and successfully complete the application process. Courses that are not part of the approved program curriculum will not qualify for financial aid.

We offer access to several forms of financial aid, grants and financial assistance programs. See below for the different forms of aid available.
A grant is a form of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. UCLA Extension offers grants to U.S. citizens and Green Card holders who are not otherwise eligible for federal aid programs. Our grants are awarded based on your financial need and your ability to effectively convey your educational objective.
Private alternative education loans are continuing education loans made available by banks and private lending institutions, not by the federal government. The interest rates, fees, and repayment schedules vary from one lender to another, and eligibility is typically based on creditworthiness.
Enrolling in Classes
Students must pay course fees at the time of registration. UCLA Extension does not defer fees.
Students are also responsible for adhering to enrollment, drop and refund policies as published by Student Services.
