Important Updates

  • The priority filing date for the 2024-25 FAFSA and CADAA has been extended to May 2, 2024. Visit Apply for Financial Aid for details.
  • The Department of Education has announced they will send information from the 2024-25 FAFSA to schools in mid-March. This may result in a delay in financial aid packaging and offers for the 2024-25 academic year. While awaiting your financial aid offer, we encourage you to utilize the UC Davis Financial Aid Estimator to estimate your potential aid.

How to understand your Cost of Attendance

Cost of Attendance is an estimated budget that the school uses to help students maximize financial aid opportunities. This budget is estimated using direct and indirect costs that a student will incur while enrolled in an academic program.

Direct Costs: Charges included in the cost of attendance that the student/family pays directly to the college. Actual charges may vary by student. For example, students may have different housing options or may enroll in a part-time program. These items include Tuition and Fees, and Health Insurance.

Indirect Costs: Estimated expenses in the cost of attendance that are not paid directly to the institution. These items include Books and Supplies, Housing and Food, Personal Expenses, and Transportation.  

Please note: The cost of attendance is calculated based on the current academic year's budget and represents the estimated expenses for a single academic year. In the event your program extends over multiple academic years, the fees listed in the budget indicate the estimated annual cost, not the total cost of the program.
