Dear UCLA Student,
UCLA is embarked on a number of cost cutting measures, one of which is to control the credit card fees that the University pays. Therefore, effective August 1, 2011, UCLA will require payment of a convenience fee for use of credit cards for BruinBill charges, which includes tuition and fees, transportation charges, and housing charges. Additionally, UCLA will no longer accept VISA as a payment type.
UCLA offers a free payment alternative eCheck through our online BruinBill that is both secure and convenient. This option provides the same ease of use as a credit card without the fees. Use of eCheck also provides students and their families the ability to enroll in the BruinPay Plan which spreads BruinBill payments over several months for a small fee.
Please contact us, at Student Financial Services, if you have questions.

Procedure: A Document Request Form must be completed and submitted when requesting a Letter of Good Standing and/or Enrollment Verification Letter/and or Transcript Request. The completed form may be returned via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, via fax (310) 794-9574 or by placing it in the Registrar mailbox (12-159 CHS). Processing time is 3-5 business days depending on time of year and volume of requests.
PLEASE NOTE: Jury Duty is a legal obligation, and our general guidelines do not supercede the processes of any jurisdiction. Court processes may vary, so please contact the number on your summons should you have any questions. While the DGSOM can compose a letter on your behalf, it is your responsibility to mail the form. Only a letter or notification from the court serves as an exemption.
First Time Receiving a Jury Summons Call
Call the Jury Service hotline telephone number listed on the summons to request a postponement of your service date. Select a date as far ahead as possible as all jurors are entitled to one postponement. On occasion, doing so will remove you from the jury pool altogether.
Second Jury Summons
If you receive a second summons, or were informed that you will not receive a second summons, request a Jury Duty Exemption Letter one month prior to your service date. Complete and submit a Document Request Form with the pertinent information from your summons. The completed form may be returned via email to email@example.com, via fax (310) 794-9574 or by placing it in the Registrar mailbox (12-159 CHS). Processing time is 3-5 business days depending on time of year and volume of requests.
You will receive an email, from the School of Medicine Registrar, when the letter is available to pick up from the SAO.
- You are responsible for mailing the letter with the Jury Summons form.
- We recommend you make a copy of the letter and summons for your records.
After the Jury Summons and Exemption Letter has been mailed, call the original Jury Service hotline telephone number, listed on the the summons, and ask to speak with a court specialist to explain your situation and request to have your summons placed on "hold' while the Exemption Letter is processed by the court system. .
You MUST speak with a court specialist. Your service will be placed on "hold" for 30 days. This should be adequate time for the court system to process the Exemption Letter. The process of reaching a court specialist over the phone is tedious and can take up to a 30 minute telephone hold time. If your jury duty service in not placed on "hold" while the letter is being process it could result in a re-summoning to jury duty, and you could be considered as a "failed to appear in court" if your assigned or selected jury duty service date has passed.
The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA requires that all incoming students obtain a health clearance from the UCLA Student Health Service for personal protection and community health reasons. The health clearance requirements include a physical examination including diagnostic tests; positive hepatitis B antibody test; and demonstration of immunity to tetanus, diphtheria, rubella, measles and mumps (including re-immunization with measles, mumps, and rubella if the immunization occurred prior to 1980; and proof of a tetanus/diphtheria booster within the last 10 years.) A pertusis with the tetanus/diphtheria booster (DPT) is strongly recommended. In addition, all students must be monitored for tuberculosis (skin test) annually during all years.
Students must have everything except the hepatitis B vaccines and titer completed by the first day of class otherwise, they may not be allowed to start classes. Additionally, if starting or continuing a hepatitis b series, this must be completed before the first day of the first year spring semester or will not be eligible to continue the second semester.
