Late Applications: Geffen Academy at UCLA will consider later applications from faculty and staff being recruited to the UCLA community due to the higher education hiring cycle and timeline. We will work with families on a case-by-case basis to ensure the student’s candidacy is thoroughly vetted in accordance with our general guidelines for admissions. In addition, we will assess remaining financial support funds available, if the family is eligible.
Applications for 2018-19 will be available Fall, 2017.
