Full-time MBA Financial Aid

Cost of Attendance

Below is the estimated cost of attendance for the 2015-2016. The following budgets are for the nine-month academic year. These figures have been determined by the university primarily for financial aid purposes. If you apply for financial aid, the official cost of attendance below will be used to determine aid eligibility. Except for some U.S. veterans, or upon successful appeal, your total financial aid processed by the Haas Financial Aid Office or through the university financial aid system (MyFinAid) cannot exceed the cost of attendance below.

All fees are subject to change. Total assessed fees may not be determined by the UC Office of the President until July but sound estimates can be found here. Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by increases or reductions in State funding, or other developments. These figures were updated March 24, 2015.

1 The university also charges all incoming students a one-time Doc Fee of $86 in the fall semester not included above. This is designed to allow smoother processing for requesting university transcripts over time.

2 The mandatory Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) may be waived upon submission of proof of a comparable health insurance policy. Waiver forms are available on the University Health Services (UHS) web page in PDF format. Waiver requests must be submitted by August 31st for entering students; by July 15th for continuing students.

3 Living Expenses are on the conservative side and assume careful budgeting as well as sharing living quarters with at least one other person. Please be aware that your expenses may be higher depending on your personal lifestyle.

4 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. The budget does not include the costs of the Haas Summer Workshops (Quantitative and Communication), as these are optional.
