Your LRAP application will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. The review should not exceed 30 days from the time you submit the application.
After your application has been reviewed, the Law School Financial Aid Office will electronically notify you of your LRAP eligibility. We will use the email provided on the application to communicate this information to you.
If you are eligible for LRAP benefits, we will send you a Master Promissory Note and Statement of Rights and Responsibilities that need to be filled out, signed and mailed to the Law School Financial Aid Office. Your original signature on these documents is required.
Upon the receipt of the above-mentioned documents, the Law School Financial Aid Office will enter the LRAP payment information in the system, after which your LRAP will be ready to disburse to BruinBill.
Once LRAP payment is credited to your BruinBill account, it will be released to you based on your method of disbursement currently reflected on MyUCLA (formerly URSA). If you have not elected Bruin Direct (electronic fund transfer to your checking/savings account), your funds will arrive via paper check sent to your mailing address showing on MyUCLA (formerly URSA).
At the end of the calendar year (usually in the following January), you are required to show the Law School Financial Aid Office proof that the LRAP loan was used in its entirety to pay off outstanding loan debt. Your loan payments to lender(s) for the period of eligibility covered by LRAP must at least equal the amount of LRAP received from UCLA Law, otherwise you will owe repayment on your LRAP loan and will not be eligible for future LRAP participation until you repay the outstanding balance.
