Important Updates

  • In observance of Juneteenth, Financial Aid and Scholarships will be closed on Wednesday, June 19, 2024
  • 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.

Cost of Attendance

Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

The UC Davis Cost of Attendance is an estimated figure used to determine financial aid eligibility. It includes tuition and fees as well as average amounts for standard expenses such as books and supplies, housing and food, and other living expenses for three-quarters of study. Keep in mind, that your actual costs may differ. Eligible expenses must occur between mid-September through mid-June. Our office reserves the right to exercise professional judgment to deny requests that are not considered direct educational expenses.

Tuition Stability Plan

Beginning in fall 2022, the University of California will keep systemwide student tuition and fees at a flat rate for up to six years beyond a student's first enrolled term. This plan will provide cost predictability for students, as systemwide tuition and fees represent a considerable percentage of the total cost of attendance. Campus-based fees and other costs, such as housing and health insurance, are not included in this plan and are subject to change each year.  Learn more about UC’s Tuition Stability Plan.

Figures for tuition and fees represent currently approved or proposed 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. Some or all instruction for all or part of the academic year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and 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.
