Official fees for attendance in the 2023-2024 LL.M. Program are as follows:
- Tuition Fee: $70,610.00
- UCSHIP Health Insurance Fee: $5,571.32*
- Mandatory Health Facilities Fees (Ashe Center Usage and CAPS Services): $238.00**
- U.C. Graduate and Professional Council (UCGPC) Fee: $7.00***
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.
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.
*Students who have health insurance which will provide coverage for the duration of the LL.M. Program may apply for a waiver of the UCSHIP fee. Before purchasing alternative insurance coverage, students should carefully review the waiver criteria.
**Health Facilities Fees are mandatory for all students and cannot be waived.
***The UCGPC Fee is a UC-wide optional fee that graduate and professional students at every UC campus can choose to pay for the purpose of funding the University of California Graduate and Professional Council. Students may submit an online request to opt out of paying this fee.
The tuition, fees, and charges posted to the student billing statement are estimates based on existing amounts. These figures may not be final. Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by state funding reductions. Accordingly, final approved tuition and fee levels (and thus a student’s final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown.
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 send it to you. After receiving the I-20 form, you must apply for an F-1 student visa through the U.S. embassy or consulate in your country of residence in order to obtain authorization to enter the country. Please plan to apply for your visa well in advance of the date you intend to travel to the United States, as appointment availability and processing time varies widely among embassies.
