Student Support Resources

UCPD is open and responsive 24/7. Extension students do not have access to main campus resources like the health center or crisis counseling. For any immediate health or safety-related concern, please call 9-1-1. If the call is made from campus, it will be routed directly to UCPD.

To report a crime: Phone: (310) 825-1491 info@ucpd.ucla.edu.

Please follow up any interaction with police or emergency services with an incident report: SRRC@unex.ucla.edu

The UCLA Extension Student Rights & Responsibilities Center (SRRC) ensures a safe, intellectually honest, and inclusive academic environment by upholding the community standards that govern all Extension classrooms, facilities and affiliated programs. We encourage students to take personal responsibility for their actions through the power of education and self-reflection.

The SRRC oversees the Student Conduct Code, ADA Compliance, and Title IX investigation for Extension. The student conduct process is private and bound by FERPA. The conduct officer will work with you to navigate the process, but details and outcomes of a conduct investigation will not be shared with anyone except the student.

Title IX is a complex legislation that addresses gender-based discrimination in educational programs. The reporting process is confidential and students are encouraged, but not required, to report. Instructors are mandated to report knowledge of sexual or gender-based violence wherever it occurs. If you suspect that a student has experienced sexual violence or harassment:

  • notify them of their rights to report, and that you are a mandatory reporter
  • notify them of their right to speak to a confidential resource in lieu of reporting
  • to make a report or referral, contact:

Melissa Turkington , SRRC Manager/Title IX Investigator – 310.825.0953 – srrc@unex.ucla.edu

CARE is committed to the eradication of sexual and gender-based violence through creating and sustaining a safe, healthy, and equitable community for all people. CARE strives to achieve this through provision of comprehensive prevention education, individual support and advocacy, and holistic healing programs for all members of the UCLA community.

Although Extension students cannot typically access UCLA campus resources, CARE has agreed to one free intake appointment with Extension students who have been referred by our staff. During this intake, students will be informed of their rights and may be referred to a community resource for ongoing support. CARE is a confidential resource. To refer a student, please email advocate@careprogram.ucla.edu.

The Rape Treatment Center (RTC) provides free, comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment for sexual assault victims – adults and children – 24 hours a day, including highly specialized emergency medical care, forensic/evidentiary services, counseling, advocacy, accompaniment, and information about rights and options to help victims make informed choices and decisions. The RTC also provides ongoing, longer-term, trauma-informed therapy and other support services for victims and their significant others.

If you or someone you know has recently experienced sexual violence, a survivor has the option to obtain a free forensic exam (for the purpose of evidence collection) up to five (5) days after an assault at the RTC 24 hours/7 days a week. The RTC also offers free trauma therapy regardless of the obtainment of a forensic exam. For more information or to schedule transportation, please call the RTC:

UCLA Extension’s Office of Disability Services (ODS) is committed to providing equal access to all academic programs and co-curricular activities for qualified students living with permanent or temporary disabilities and empowering students to realize their academic and personal potential.

Instructors are legally barred from granting any accommodation for a disability that has not been approved by ODS. ODS will notify instructors of necessary accommodations in advance of any quarter that a student has enrolled in their course. If a student requests accommodations directly, and you have not yet heard from ODS regarding an approved accommodation, please refer the student.

The Office of Ombuds Services works to ensure that all members of the University community receive fair and equitable treatment in matters of concern or complaint.
