Fees and Non-Resident Tuition
The most current fees and tuition rates are always posted on the Registrar’s Office web site. The Registrar’s Office Fees website is the authoritative UCLA source on fees and non-resident tuition. The fees and tuition published on the Registrar’s web site are subject to revision without notice.
California students pay only fees, whereas out-of-state and international students pay fees and non-resident tuition which are listed in two formats, annual and quarterly. These are flat fees and not based on number or units, although a minimum of 12 units is required to maintain full-time graduate student status.
For Annual Fees check the School of Public Affairs M.P.P. degree program link under the Annual Fee Charts section of the Registrar’s Office Fees web page. For Quarterly Fees check the M.P.P. link under the Term Fee Charts section.
International students pay non-resident fees and tuition but require additional documentation of financial resources to qualify for a student visa. Click here
