LL.M. Program Tuition and Visa Information


Official fees for attendance in the 2020-2021 LL.M. Program are as follows:

Tuition: $64,046.00
Health Insurance: $4,458.00
Mandatory Health Facilities Fees: $238.00
Total: $68,742.00

All fees are charged to students in two equal installments, with the first installment due in mid-August and the remainder due in mid-December. Alternatively, students may enroll in the BruinPay Plan to pay tuition and fees in monthly installments. Additionally, the university estimates that a student can expect to incur living expenses of approximately $20,000 for the year.

Tuition costs are identical for both international and domestic students. California residents are not eligible for discounted tuition. LL.M. students may pursue financial aid resources to help supplement the cost of attendance.

Visa Information

If you accept UCLA's offer of admission, the UCLA Dashew Center for International Students and Scholars will email you instructions for applying online for an I-20 form. Along with your I-20 application, you will be required to submit electronic copies of your passport, as well as financial documentation which demonstrates that you possess the necessary funds to pay for the costs of tuition and living expenses. After receiving and processing these items, the Dashew Center will issue your I-20 form, and the law school will ship it to you. After receiving the I-20 form, you must make an appointment at the U.S. embassy or consulate in your country of residence in order to apply for an F-1 student visa to travel to the United States. Please make an appointment well in advance of the date you intend to travel to the United States, as some embassies and consulates take several weeks (or even months) to process visa requests.
