I. BruinBill Payment Methods

Pay online via MYUCLA using:

eCheck: a free and convenient payment option. All you need is a U.S. checking or savings account to submit an eCheck payment through your BruinBill. Setting up an account with the University Credit Union (UCU) is a great option for international students in need of a U.S. bank account.

BruinPay Plan: allows you to pay your tuition in installments. Just enroll on your BruinBill at the beginning of each term. Click here to view more details.

Pay by foreign currency: a convenient payment option for international students. When paying your BruinBill, select "Pay by foreign currency" and follow the prompts. This is an exciting new option where international students are provided with a convenient to wire money from their own country, and receive comparable exchange rates for a select period of time.

Pay by electronic funds transfer (EFT):

Customers can have funds transferred electronically from their bank to UCLA to pay the BruinBill. You should allow up to two weeks for processing of electronic fund transfers. We process EFT payments as they come in, so continue to monitor your account up to the payment deadline. If you still do not see your EFT payment posted close to the payment deadline, send a redacted copy of your bank EFT confirmation to the Messaging Center for review.

III. Overpayments

If you make an overpayment to your bill when paying by check or eCheck, we must wait 5 business days before refunding the money back to you. This process is to help ensure that if your banking institution were to not honor the check payment that we are able to make the necessary adjustments to your bill before a refund disburses.

If you make an overpayment to your bill when paying by electronic funds transfer, this return will cause a delay in the payment being posted to your BruinBill.
