Cost of Education
A standardized set of budgets is used as the basis for determining the cost of attendance at UCLA. The budgets vary based on the student’s living arrangements while in school; from living with parents or relatives, to living on-campus (residence halls), to living off-campus (apartment, sororities, fraternities).
UCLA can allow certain expenses as the basis for increasing student’s cost of education. Any increases based on such expenses will be covered with additional federal loan eligibility. To review the list of expenses that can be used to increase your budget, please review the Petition for Re-evaluation available in the FAO Forms section of this site.
