Noted below is the estimated cost of attendance for the 2018-2019 academic year. These figures are determined by the university primarily for financial aid purposes. Except for some U.S. veterans, or upon a successful budget adjustment, your total financial aid as displayed in CalCentral cannot exceed the estimates below.
All fees are subject to change. Total assessed fees may not be determined by the UC Office of the President until July prior to the start of classes but sound estimates can be found here. Costs are $3,363 per unit for the 2018-19 academic year. Cost of attendance items, and subsequent financial aid options, are subject to change due to votes by the UC Regents, UC Office of the President policy changes, external or internal audits, or Congressional action. Please note that fees are subject to change and you should expect them to rise each year.
For financial aid purposes, your cost of attendance will be based on 8 units per term in your first year then 6 units each term thereafter. This aligns with historical borrowing patterns for most students in this program. However, adjustments to reflect different enrollment levels, as shown in the budgets below, can be made upon request after the end of the add/drop period.
