Self-supporting graduate degree programs are designed to serve professionals seeking career advancement.

Self-supporting graduate professional-degree programs primarily serve professionals seeking to advance their careers. These programs allow UCLA to serve additional students above and beyond those supported by state funds, and fulfill demonstrated higher-education and workforce needs.

Self-supporting graduate professional degree programs include, but are not limited to, those that serve nontraditional populations such as full-time employees, mid-career professionals, international students with specialized goals, and students whose professional education is supported by their employers.

Because these programs are not supported with state funds, students are not eligible for Cal Vet tuition/fee exemptions.
