Tuition and Financial Aid

Earning your MPAc is a significant investment of time and money. UC Davis offers comprehensive financial assistance to enable you to enroll in the UC Davis MPAc Program.

MPAc Students who start in fall 2020 pay $1,038 per unit.

The MPAc program requires 48 units for a total estimated course fee of $49,824 for students entering in fall 2020.

The UC Davis office of Financial Aid and Scholarships establishes a modest, yet adequate, cost-of-living allowance to determine financial aid eligibility each school year. This allowance includes housing and utilities, food, transportation, personal/miscellaneous expenses and medical expenses.
