A convenient new feature of the MPP application this year enables you to complete your application for the program and upload most of the other supplemental required materials directly onto the site. Please go to the UCLA Graduate Division Online Application for more information on the process and to apply. The UCLA Graduate Division Online Application consists of the application form and supporting documents, which must be submitted with a $80 (for U.S. citizens and Permanent Residents) or $100.00 (for all other applicants) on-line payment no later than January 10th for admission in the following fall.
You will be required to upload the following documents, so please have them prepared.
APPLICANTS FROM CHINA and South Korea: In order to provide an in-person interview opportunity for all Chinese and South Korean applicants interested in UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and to process your application faster, we have partnered with Vericant. Vericant will conduct video interviews and short writing samples with our applicants in Mainland China and South Korea. Vericant does not evaluate candidates but, instead, posts the interviews online for our admissions team to review. The Vericant interview will form part of your application package if you opt to sit the interview.
Although the Vericant interview is not mandatory, we highly recommend you sit the Vericant interview, as it will give you an excellent opportunity to showcase your skills and professionalism to our admissions team.
To learn more about Vericant and to schedule an interview, please visit Vericant's Website.
International students must also submit:
