Money matters. The financial resources to assist you and your Bruin are at your fingertips. From Financial Aid to BruinBill, any question you have about finances at UCLA can be answered through this section.
FERPA/3rd Party Access
Because of FERPA regulations, parents are not automatically granted access to student information. However, for those who still want to access their student’s information, such as grades, BruinBill, and more, these families can receive Third Party Access from their student. For more information on Third Party Access click here.
All students are assigned a BruinBill account which records all charges and payments associated with registration (e.g. quarterly tuition and fees), along with other service charges (e.g. health insurance, Summer Session, housing, parking and even ASUCLA textbooks) that are assessed to students. Students must pay all charges in full by the 20th of the month following the posting date of the charge. Click here to see fee details.
Financial Aid & Scholarships
The mission of the UCLA Financial Aid and Scholarships office is to help remove financial barriers and to assist students in meeting the rising cost of attendance at UCLA. The office will assist students in completing their application for financial aid, determining the level of need and offering financial aid to meet educational expenses.

Financial Wellness Program
The mission of UCLA’s Financial Wellness Program is to empower Bruins to confidently navigate their finances in a way that supports their overall well-being. This program fosters financial literacy skills through workshops, individualized coaching and online educational efforts.
