News and Announcements
Congratulations new Bruins! If you have been accepted to UCLA but do not have a Provisional Award Letter (PAL) on MyUCLA, take a look at the most common reasons for why you might not have received a PAL yet. Frequently it is easy to resolve this issue.
Top three reasons newly admitted students do not have a provisional award letter.
- You did not include your Social Security Number on your admission application, or accidentally mistyped it. We use your SSN to load your financial aid application, without that you will not have a Provisional Award Letter. You can add or change your SSN on your student profile at this direct MyUCLA link. If you are unable to update a mistyped SSN, please contact our office and we can assist you.
- You did not include UCLA’s school code on your FAFSA or Dream Act Application. Please double check your application and make sure UCLA’s School code, 001315, was included in your list of schools. If it was not included, add our school code and resubmit your FAFSA or Dream application. It typically takes 3-5 business days for us to receive your application once updated. Once we receive the updated application we will be able to generate a PAL for you.
- You need to submit additional documents. Please check requested documents on MyUCLA to see if you have anything requested. Submit requested documents as soon as you can.
If you have checked all three of these potential issues and believe none of them are the reason you do not have a Provisional Award Letter, please contact our office, using the phone number or message center information on our Contact Us Page.
