*A Note about Program Fees

UCLA and UCLA Extension course fees for students enrolled in Study Abroad at UCLA are higher than fees for U.S. and California residents. That’s because the higher fees cover the costs of providing additional student services for international students. These higher fees are common for public institutions in the U.S.

Fees for California residents are lower than fees for non-residents and international students because all California residents pay California State taxes and those tax dollars support the State universities. UCLA and other California State Universities are subsidized by these tax dollars paid by California residents.
