  • Students whose housing contracts have been canceled or who are considering changing their housing status for fall 2020 are encouraged to read the office’s Changes to Your Housing Selection FAQ (PDF) for information on how these decisions may affect their financial aid.
  • The federal government has made emergency financial aid grants available to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations. UCLA prioritized providing awards to eligible students enrolled in spring term 2020. The campus will continue to monitor federal and state economic conditions, as well as the prospects for additional government emergency funding for students.
  • Visit the office’s video library for answers to some common questions about financial aid.
