The amounts shown here represent, for planning purposes, the fee levels for 2017-18. Actual charges for the 2018-19 academic year have yet to be determined by the Campus and/or Regents of the University of California and are not yet available at this time. Final figures are subject to change and may differ from the amount shown.

¹ The 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 2017-18 quarterly tuition and fees amount is $4,535.76. 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 charges and any applicable program charges.

³ The amount 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.
