You’ve completed your certificate and possibly participated in the graduation ceremony at Royce Hall. UCLA Extension congratulates you on reaching your goal and is proud to have played a role in your writing education. But your association with us isn’t over yet. As an Extension graduate, you are automatically enrolled in the UCLA Alumni Association which entitles you to numerous benefits as outlined below.
- Membership in the UCLA Alumni Association
UCLA Extension certificate graduates are automatically enrolled in the UCLA Alumni Association, a strong and active network of alumni spanning the country and the globe. This active community of graduates has the opportunity to engage with fellow alumni, expand social and professional networks, and attend world-class cultural and athletic events at a discount.
- Lifelong Learning. At a Discount!
Writing education is lifelong, so don’t stop now. Members of the UCLA Alumni Association receive a 10% discount (up to $50 maximum) on most UCLA Extension courses.
