Graduate & Professional School Services

The UCLA Career Center offers personal assistance and programs on the graduate and professional school application process, including program selection, the personal essay, faculty recommendations, admissions tests, and financial assistance. In the Fall quarter, the Career Center hosts the annual UCLA Graduate and Professional School Fair. This fair attracts representatives from more than 150 colleges and universities who showcase their university programs and offer admission information.

UCLA Pre-Professional Services

There are many offices on campus ready to assist you with your pre-professional planning: The UCLA Career Center, College Counseling, and Departmental Counseling. For more details and a four year pre-professional plan, download the "UCLA Pre-Professional Services Referral Sheet" PDF (also known as the "Green Sheets").

Letters of Reference Service

The Letter of Reference (LOR) Service allows UCLA undergraduate, graduate students and alumni (who pay an annual activation fee) to store their letters of reference for graduate and professional school programs with our department. Since these letters are solely for the purpose of supporting your application to graduate and professional programs, we will only send your letters to admissions offices at universities and colleges. Furthermore, because the purpose of this service is to send letters to multiple graduate and professional schools, we can only accept non-specifically addressed letters. For more details, go to Letters of Reference.

Fellowships and Scholarships

Fellowships provide the opportunity for study, research, or work related to one’s particular field of interest. They can range in time from six months to two years in duration and usually include a stipend or other benefits. Most fellowships require that applicants have a BA or BS degree or are currently working on or have already secured a graduate/professional degree. For further information on eligibility, application procedures, and assistance in competing for awards to fund graduate study or research, select our Fellowships link, visit the Career Center Lab, or visit the Internship and Study Abroad Office, both located on the second floor of the Strathmore Building.
