The amounts shown here represent, for planning purposes, the fee levels for 2017-18.

Final figures are subject to change and may differ from the amount shown.

¹The tuition, fees, and charges posted here are estimates based on currently approved amounts. These figures may not be final. Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by State funding reductions. Accordingly, final approved levels (and thus a student's final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown.

² For full time Graduate California Residents the 2018-19 quarterly tuition and fees amount is $4,543.33. Accommodations and Services Abroad Fee is subject to change based on fluctuating exchange rates and unexpected changes in activities. Nonresident Supplemental Tuition (NRST) is also charged to nonresident students in addition to mandatory changes and any applicable program charges.

³ The amounts shown on this page excludes health insurance in the totals. The University of California Regents mandates that all students have health insurance. UC Davis automatically enrolls all registered students in the UC Davis Student Health Insurance Plan (Davis SHIP). If students have comparable insurance and do not want to be enrolled in Davis SHIP, they must apply for a Davis SHIP waiver by the date specified for their school. More information about the SHIP.
