What Does The UC Cost?

The cost of living and studying at UC for California-based undergraduates!

The below mentioned chart gives an approximate idea of the average yearly cost of living and studying at any UC campus. This is an estimate of the annual expenditure of attending UC for any California-based undergraduate.

Most of the students are spared from paying this cost as they opt for and are provided grants and scholarships. The most suitable option for students, whose parents have an annual income of less than $70,000, to cover the entire system-wide fees is to seek the UC’s Blue and Gold Opportunity Plan.

The total cost will vary at UC as per the personal expenditure of an individual and the UC campus attended.
