Our office establishes estimated costs of attendance covering educational expenses at UCI as well as the costs of a modest but adequate standard of living. These costs are updated annually.
Included in the cost of attendance are fees, books and supplies, room and board, and miscellaneous expenses.
Of course, the amount anyone spends depends greatly upon her or his own personal situation and choices.
Students have choices about where they live while attending UCI: at home with parents or relatives; on campus in a residence hall or an apartment; or in an off-campus apartment. Each of these living arrangements has a different cost.
To assist you in planning, the budgets below are the estimated expenses for 2017-18.
Actual tuition, fees, and charges are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by increases or reductions in State funding, or other developments.
