Some or all instruction for all or part of the Academic Year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the Academic Year. Figures for tuition and fees represent currently approved amounts and may not be final. Actual tuition and fees are subject to change by the University of California as determined to be necessary or appropriate. Final approved tuition and fee levels may differ from the amounts presented.

Notes:

1 Tuition, fees, and charges 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 a student’s final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown.

 2 The University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UCSHIP) supplements the outpatient care available to all registered students through the Campus Health Center.  Students are automatically enrolled in the UCSHIP and therefore charged an associated health insurance fee; however, students who can prove comparable or better coverage from another source may apply for an exemption from the UCSHIP and have the associated health insurance fee waived. This health insurance fee is non-refundable after the first day of instruction. For more information on UCSHIP and the associated health insurance fee, to include the waiver process, please visit https://studenthealth.ucr.edu/student-health-insurance-plan-ship.

Typical Housing Costs Near UC Campuses

The Total Cost of Attendance (TCOA) at the University of California includes tuition, fees, and expenses for housing, food, educational materials, and transportation. For undergraduates, the UC Office of the President develops the cost of attendance based in part on results of its University-wide Cost of Attendance Survey. 1 The estimated costs for three living categories (on-campus, off-campus, living with parents) at each UC undergraduate campus is listed here. The 2019-20 estimate for other cost-of-living categories at the University of California can be found here. For graduate students, each campus and program may establish the cost of attendance, although data are collected systemwide for their use here; visit the websites of each graduate program for additional information.

Linked below are typical housing rates near campuses derived from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).2 Table 1 displays the monthly rent for one-and two-bedroom apartments, and Table 2 lists the cost of one-person bedrooms in private houses near UC campuses.
