Continuing Graduate Students at UCI


We've crunched the numbers.


Our estimate of your costs of going to school as a continuing graduate student include tuition, fees, books and supplies, room and board, and miscellaneous items. We also include an amount for personal expenses, which obviously will vary based on your lifestyle and choices. You’ll see the estimated costs for the 2020-21 academic year on the table below.

Keep in mind that it’s up to you where you live while you’re in school—with your family, on campus, or an apartment on or off campus. They all come with their own advantages—and costs. We suggest you check out CashCourse to help create your budget.

 Note that these numbers may not be final. Actual tuition, fees and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California, and could be impacted by factors including changes in state funding. Also, tuition and mandatory fees won’t be refunded if instruction is delivered remotely for any part of the 2020-21 academic year.
