We aim to make sure you’re as informed as possible during the application process.

Our FAQ are designed to assist you with the application process. If you still have additional questions after reviewing the FAQ, please sign up to join a webinar (located in the "Take Action" section above), or you can schedule a one-on-one admissions meeting. One-on-one meetings take place weekly over the phone or in person. Please email April Owens (april.owens@anderson.ucla.edu) if you are interested in a one-on-one meeting.
