*The listed Room/Board, Books/Supplies, Transportation, and Personal Expenses amounts 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 tuition and fees posted here are estimates based on currently approved amounts. These figures may not be final. 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. 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 $12,570 for tuition/student services fees and $1,390 for campus fees.

**For Off-Campus rental options,  including market costs for one-bedroom apartments and other housing arrangements,  please refer to the UCSC Community Rentals website,  https://communityrentals.ucsc. edu/index.html

***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: financial aid will not cover the health insurance cost for students who choose to waive out of UC USHIP.
