Welcome to the Students with Dependents Program
The Students with Dependents (SwD) Program within the Bruin Resource Center offers support to UCLA undergraduate, graduate, and professional students who have taken on the role of parent, guardian, or caregiver and have continued their academic careers. Through partnerships with parenting student organizations at UCLA, the SwD Program can direct students with dependents to organizations and resources that would support scholars and their families throughout their educational journey.
The Students with Dependents Program at UCLA acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). As a land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors),' Ahiihirom (Elders), and 'Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present, and emerging.
