Making Contact with our Counselors:
For initial questions and concerns, please contact us using Message Center. An advisor will reply to your inquiry within two business days.
The SRC will be open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays in Fall Quarter 2021 (except for the week of Thanksgiving and Finals week, when we will offer services online only). Drop in to ask questions or consult our library of scholarship resources. For safety reasons, only one student will be admitted at a time (masked). If the door is closed, please knock.
Book writing appointments here.
We advise students to attend a Personal Statement Workshop prior to booking a 1:1 writing appointment with us. You will be prompted to upload your draft after booking your appointment.
Policies: Due to the limited availability of appointments, we ask you only to book one appointment at a time. If you have more than two no-shows or late cancellations (under 24 hours notice), you will not be able to book appointments for a period of two weeks.
We offer workshops (via Zoom) on various topics in the scholarship process, including how to search and apply (Secrets to Winning College Cash Parts I and II), how to ask for letters of recommendation, and how to draft effective personal statements. Throughout the year we will also offer specialized workshops related to specific scholarships. You can see our workshop listings here and enroll via my.ucla.edu. Registration is required and is restricted to students.
Please Note: We are offering students the choice to conduct advising via video-conference on Zoom but must convey that this method makes ensuring FERPA privacy difficult. SRC Student Affairs Advisors will conduct video advising in a private location, and we recommend that students do the same to limit the amount of information that could be overheard by others in the vicinity. By agreeing to video-conference advising, students confirm they understand this situation.
