Notes:

*The tuition and fees posted here are estimates based on currently approved amounts.  These figures may not be final.  Actual tuition and fees for in-state and non-resident students are subject to change by the Regents of the University of California and could be affected by State funding reductions.  Accordingly, final approved levels (and thus a student's final balance due) may differ from the amounts shown. The Tuition and Fees amount listed above includes $12,192 for  tuition/student services fees and $1,206 for campus fees based upon full-time enrollment.  Please note that a reduction in mandatory fees, such as the reduction for part-time enrollment, will result in adjustments to awarded aid.

**The listed Room/Board, Books/Supplies, Transportation, and Personal Expenses represent an average cost for students.  Average amounts are determined annually based on statistical data from a variety of sources including periodic surveys of UC Santa Cruz students.  Your individual cost may vary. 

***The University of California Regents mandate that all students be covered by a health insurance plan.  All full and part-time undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in and charged for the University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) unless they choose to submit an on-line insurance waiver confirming they have comparable health insurance coverage to the Health Center.  Please note that a waiver of the UC SHIP may result in adjustments to awarded aid.
