General information

Full-Time MBA Costs

After the University of California Board of Regents sets tuition, the University of California, Davis Graduate Financial Aid Office sets the Student Budget. The Student Budget is used to calculate financial aid eligibility, including scholarships, grants and loans. It assumes a modest lifestyle for a single person in Davis.

The room and board figure assumes shared housing in an off-campus apartment. If you have a family or extraordinary expenses, your budget may be adjusted accordingly.

Tuition for the current academic year can be found here.

As a result of gubernatorial, legislative, Regental and/or campus actions, tuition and fees may change without notice.
