Below is the estimated cost of attendance for your program. 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, namely, borrowing capacity. Except for some U.S. veterans, your total financial aid as displayed in the university Cal Central system cannot exceed the estimates below.
Assessed fees cover tuition, books*, hotel accommodations, administrative fees, and most meals during residence periods. Airfare is not included. Participants and/or sponsors are billed in equal amounts each of the 5 terms. All budget items are subject to change. Cost of attendance items, and subsequent financial aid options, are subject to change due to votes by the UC Regents, UCOP policy changes, external or internal audits, or Congressional action.
Figures for estimated living expenses are finalized just before the academic year begins as it is based on the amount of time you are on campus for scheduled instruction. The finalized schedule could cause the estimated living expenses to adjust.
