Tell Us Your Story!

You enrolled, took courses (online, in the evenings, on the weekends), and finished your certificate … and the journey. But that’s not the WHOLE story!

Tell us how a class enlightened you, a program helped you reach your goal, a favorite instructor inspired you, or how UCLA Extension changed your life.

We invite you to submit your story of 100 words or less (a digital picture of yourself would be nice, too). UCLA Extension will share these stories with the public and media to help tell our story. Join us, and tell your Extension story!
