To All Financial Aid Applicants, Recipients and Parents,

The UCLA Financial Aid Office and the Student Loan Services Office are currently experiencing an unprecedented level of student aid processing demands. The weak national and state economies, coupled with higher college fee costs, have placed considerable strain on family resources. These realities have in turn resulted in a significant increase of financial aid applicants and re-evaluation requests. In addition, unexpected changes have been encountered with the banking and lending industry affecting financial loan certification processes. The consequence of these developments requires that great emphasis be placed on the careful evaluation of applications, determination of eligibility, and processing of awards to assure the timely availability of funds.

In order that we may serve you better and ensure the most timely and efficient delivery of financial aid to all, our walk-in office and telephone service hours have been modified to facilitate aid processing, enabling us to meet the needs of all student aid applicants/recipients more effectively. Phone wait times may vary due to the volume of calls received. We do encourage you to visit our website for direct 24/7 access to a wealth of information, answers to commonly asked questions, alternate contact information, and current walk-in office/phone hours.

Our primary goal is to provide you with quality customer service. We want to assure you that your experience at UCLA is important to us. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

2015-16 First-Time Perkins Loan Borrower FINAL DEADLINES!

Without further action on the part of Congress, a Perkins Loan cannot be made to a 'new borrower' after September 30, 2015.

IF YOU ARE A POTENTIAL FIRST-TIME PERKINS LOAN BORROWER wishing to receive the Perkins Loan offered to you for the 2015-16 academic year, you must perform ALL of the following:

  • 'Accept' the Perkin Loan offered on your Financial Aid Notification (FAN) by no later than Tuesday, September 29, 2015.
  • Complete a Debt Management Session/Entrance Exam on the Student Loan Services & Collections website, if you have not already, by no later than Tuesday, September 29, 2015. (Go to for details.)
  • Go in-person to the Loan Services Office, A227 Murphy Hall to receive, complete and submit your Perkins Loan Master Promissory Note and related documents by no later than 2:00PM on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.

Please be aware that failure to complete any of the above tasks by the specified deadline dates may result in the cancellation of your Perkins Loan.

(For future reference please note that according to current regulations, a student who in 2015-2016 award year receives a Perkins Loan for the first-time will NOT be eligible to receive a Perkins Loan beyond the 2015-2016 award year. This may change if Congress decides to reauthorize or extend the program.)

IF YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY BORROWED UNDER THE PERKINS LOAN PROGRAM while at UCLA, you are 'grandfathered' into the program and will be able to continue participating in the Perkins Loan Program for no more than the next five years. However, continuation of participation is based on specific circumstances and qualifying under program and awarding guidelines. [See your Financial Aid Counselor for details.]

SAVE THE PERKINS LOAN PROGRAM   This subsidized student loan program, featuring a 5% fixed interest rate and a 9-month grace period, offers various repayment and postponement options. It is the only subsidized loan program available to qualifying graduate students. It also has several options for full- or partial-forgiveness as well as promotes careers in areas of economic need and shortage. Many financially-challenged students benefit from this program each year (as well as those who are out of school and in repayment). Help keep this important educational loan program in place for current and future students who may not be able to further their education without it.
