University Of California, Los Angeles

UCLA is one of the world’s great research universities, number 11 in London’s Times Higher Education rankings (2010-2011). Our faculty includes Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, multiple MacArthur fellows and scores of national academy members. Interdisciplinary teaching and research is a particular strength, with initiatives in the arts, stem cells and other biosciences, nanoscience, international studies and the environment.

Our freshmen and transfer students have a 91% success and progress rate – that’s the percentage who graduate or remain in good standing after four years (two for transfers). Many seniors choose capstone projects as part of their degree programs.

Campus Life and Diversity There are almost 40,000 students at UCLA, roughly 27,000 undergraduates and 13,000 graduate and professional students. The student body is diverse both in cultural and economic terms. As many as 36% of UCLA undergraduates receive Pell Grants, given to students whose family income is typically less than $50,000 (Fall 2010). International students account for 17% of graduate students and 5% of undergraduates. U.S. undergraduate ethnicity includes 4% African American, 15% Hispanic, 33% White and 38% Asian/Pacific Islander. (Fall 2009 profile)

More than 9,500 undergraduates live as part of the on-campus community, in residence halls, plazas and suites “on the hill.” About 4,000 undergrads belong to fraternities or sororities, and 32 of those groups offer housing. Some 3,000 graduate students live in UCLA housing, with a major complex in Westwood and additional complexes within 5 miles of campus.
