University Fees/Billing Information
What is BruinBill?
BruinBill is the UCLA campus billing platform where account holders can manage and pay for registration fees, campus charges, housing, transportation fees, and more. Your BruinBill is available 24/7; just logon to MyUCLA.
Fees are assessed monthly via BruinBill and payment is due on the 20th of the month following the posting date of the charge. If the 20th falls on a weekend or a holiday, the due date is the last business day prior to the 20th.
* Posted tuition, fees, and charges are estimates based on currently approved amounts. These figures may not be final. Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by State funding reductions. Accordingly, final approved fees and charges (and thus a student's final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown.

When do I pay my BruinBill?
For regular undergraduate students, tuition and housing fees are assessed prior to the beginning of each quarter. Your BruinBill reflects your due balance after your anticipated financial aid disbursement. If anticipated financial aid does not fully cover your fees, you are still responsible for making a payment by the deadline. It is important that you regularly review your BruinBill throughout the term for new charges to avoid incurring delinquency fees.
Account holders must pay all charges in full by the 20th of the month following the posting date of the charge. If the 20th falls on a weekend or holiday, the due date is the last business day prior to the 20th. Payment must be made by 5:00 p.m. (PT) online or by 4:00 p.m. (PT) if made in-person at the Payment Solutions & Compliance Office at 1125 Murphy Hall.
Bi-weekly email reminders are sent to account holders with a balance. Please ensure your MyUCLA email address is up to date at all times. Continue to monitor your account for six months after your affiliation ends with UCLA.
Please note, if student services fees are not paid in full by the payment deadline the account will be subject to late fees and holds will be placed on the account, and classes will be dropped in accordance with the drop class deadline (see the Registrar’s Calendar for class drop dates specific to each term).
