Veterans@Anderson

Simply put, we are a better business school — a better community — because of the veterans and active military among us.

Our Military Veteran Community

 

The Anderson Veterans Association (AVA) is a student club whose mission is to support the professional development and strengthen the community of UCLA Anderson military veteran students. We welcome you to review and directly reach out to the AVA student club officers listed on the club web page.

Financial Aid for Military

 
Post-9/11 GI Bill

UCLA Anderson is a public school; therefore, VA tuition payments are not capped for in-state tuition.

 
Yellow Ribbon Bill

UCLA Anderson participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program for non-California residents. The VA pays for California resident student charges, as well as 50 percent of the difference between California resident and non-California resident student charges. UCLA Anderson pays the other 50 percent of the remaining student charges.

 
Application Fee Waivers

Fee waivers are available for active members of the U.S. military. To request a fee waiver, please reach out directly to mba.admissions@anderson.ucla.edu.

 
Fellowships

Even if you are not eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill Yellow Ribbon Program, all admitted Anderson students are automatically considered for fellowships. No separate application is needed.
