Undergraduate Admission

UCLA welcomes applications from students throughout California, across the nation and around the world. We value a variety of experiences and backgrounds, and we believe that diversity of people and their ideas strengthen everything we do.

Our admission process is holistic and individualized. We thoroughly review every application, looking for students who challenge themselves academically, engage in extracurricular activities and demonstrate a willingness to contribute in the community.

Our top-ranked academic programs, supportive environment and location in the global city of Los Angeles are just a few of the reasons why UCLA is the most applied-to university in the nation.

A Surprisingly Affordable Education

Financial aid comes in many forms. We take pride in providing opportunity, regardless of socioeconomic background.

UCLA is consistently numbered among the most economically diverse, top-ranked schools. More than one-third of undergraduates receive Pell Grants. And nearly one-third of undergraduates are the first generation in their families to graduate from a four-year university.
