Just send your name and membership ID number to email@example.com and we will issue you a password.

Because UCLA is a state-supported school, the Admissions Office cannot take into consideration the alumni status of family members. This policy helps ensure that applicants who may be first-generation college students can compete fairly with those who have UCLA graduates in their family.

Membership donations are gifts to the UCLA Foundation. By making a charitable gift to the University of California Los Angeles, a 501(c)(3) organization, the donor understands that charitable donations are not refundable.
While we encourage corporate/matching gifts, they do not qualify for upgrades to Blue or Gold UCLA Alumni Association membership.
