Evening & Weekend MBA Financial Aid

Cost of Attendance

Fees are assessed by UC Berkeley on a per-unit basis and derived from the approved fees from the UC Office of the President. Fees are $2,790 per unit for the 2013-2014 academic year. Costs are always subject to change.

The following budgets are for the nine-month academic year. These budgets have been determined by the university primarily for financial aid purposes. If you apply for financial aid, these official budgets will be used to determine financial aid eligibility. Please note that EWMBA fees are subject to change and you should expect them to rise each year of the MBA program. This information is current as of June 25, 2013.

The cost of books and course materials is included in the cost of fees. Beginning in 2014-15 the cost of textbooks will be itemized separately in our cost of attendance for financial planning purposes.  Textbooks will no longer be part of the billable cost due at the beginning of each semester.  Students will receive an iPad at the beginning of the program to be used to access course materials and purchase e-books.  The cost of the iPad will not be an additional cost to students and are included in tuition fees.

Explanation of Fees

  • Class Pass / Transit Fee: Included in the EWMBA Fees, UC Berkeley charges a Bus Pass / Transit Fee of $78.50 per semester, itemized on your E-Bill. All students must pay this fee, and it cannot be waived even if you later withdraw for the semester.
  • This budget does not include items such as credit card debt or automobile expenses. We recommend that you reduce these obligations before you enter school, as they cannot be considered in your financial aid budget under federal regulations.
