Tuition & Cost

Undergraduate Tuition

Attending UCLA is a valuable investment in your future, and it costs less than you might think. In fact, Forbes ranked UCLA the No. 1 best value university in the country, considering price, average student debt, future earnings, education quality and other factors.

Most families pay less than the full price, and 45 percent of our undergraduate students pay no tuition at all. We offer an array of housing options and meal plans — as well as financial aid for housing — so that you have flexibility as to how much you pay.

In addition, UCLA offers payment plans for both tuition and housing so families can make smaller, regular payments throughout the academic year instead of larger, lump-sum payments.
