New Families

Once you are on the SSS website, create a username and password and then click on the prompt to begin your Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). Please take the time to gather the required information prior to beginning the PFS and don’t worry if you are unable to complete everything at once. You can log into your account to complete the PFS in more than one session.

Returning Families

If you are a returning family applying for a sibling and have applied for tuition support in the past, please use the email address and password you previously set up and log into the PFS online as a returning family.

New student SSS applications must be submitted no later than December 18, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. PST. Be sure to indicate that UCLA Lab School (SSS code 9224) should receive a copy of the results.

NOTE: The “PFS Workbook and Instruction Booklet” is available in English and in Spanish.


Upload all your 2019 documents by December 18, 2020. Your 2020 taxes and W2 forms will be due on February 28, 2021.

How to submit documents

After paying for and submitting your Parents’ Financial Statement, you will gain access to the “My Documents” tab in your portal.

Here, you can view the list of required documents for your selected school(s) and their deadline dates, upload your files, and track documents you’ve submitted and those still outstanding.
