Medical school is one of the greatest investments you can make in your education, your community, and your career. But, it's still a big investment. UCI provides a wealth of resources to help with the costs of medical school. When it comes to making medical school accessible for everyone, we're in this together.

What’s the estimated cost of attendance?


Everyone’s educational path and personal situation is different, but our office has established an estimated cost of attendance based on educational expenses at UCI, as well as the cost of a modest but adequate standard of living. Included in the cost of attendance are tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, and miscellaneous expenses. The amount spent will ultimately depend on your personal choices. These figures may not be final and are subject to change by The Regents of the University of California.
