The Economic Crisis Response Team (ECR TEAM) provides support and guidance to students who have self-identified, or are identified by UCLA faculty or staff, as experiencing a financial crisis that impacts their academic success at UCLA. We aim to efficiently, compassionately and discreetly:
1) Provide a seamless and individualized response to UCLA students in extraordinary financial crisis.
2) Develop proposals for actions to examine (and revise, when appropriate) university policies and office protocols in order to improve students' ability to manage their financial situations and avoid economic crisis.
If you are in financial distress, please complete the ECRT Self-Assessment Form.

ECRT connects with students seeking support within 24-48 business hours from the initial request.
