Financial Aid at UCLA is provided to graduate students in the form of grants, fellowships, traineeships, teaching assistantships, and graduate student researcher appointments. Support based solely on need is also provided, in the form of work-study and loans, through the Financial Aid Office.
The Financial Aid Office  administers financial support based on need to domestic, full-time students.
To apply for financial aid, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)  or the FAFSA Renewal Application by March 2. Completion of the FAFSA or the FAFSA Renewal Application is required for all financial aid programs.

Updated fees will be posted on the Registrar's website when available.
