Cost of Attendance

The total cost of attendance (COA) at UCLA includes tuition, fees and expenses for housing, food, educational materials and transportation. Typical Housing Costs information is also compiled by UC Office of the President and can give you an idea of housing costs in areas close to UCLA.

Your COA budget is determined by the housing option selected on your financial aid application and is used to determine the maximum amount of financial aid that can be awarded. Off Campus students are students who live independently (whether alone, with a roommate, domestic partner, or spouse). Commuter students are students who are living with their parents/guardians.

Decisions on residence status for tuition purposes are made by the UCLA Campus Residence Deputy. For more information regarding Residence for Tuition Purposes, please visit the Registrar’s Office website.

A breakdown of annual and term student fees is available on the Registrar's Office website. The amounts shown represents, for planning purposes, estimates of 2021-22 tuition and fees for existing and proposed professional degree programs. Actual tuition, fees, and charges for 2022-23 have yet to be determined by The Regents of the University of California. Accordingly, final figures are subject to change and may differ from the amounts shown.
