Registration Fees and Financial Planning
For more information regarding fee payment plans please see Business and Financial Services Payment Plans. You may also consult a customer service representative at the Central Cashier's Office, Student Affairs and Administrative Services Building (SAASB) 1212. The Payment Plan Agreement Form is available online.
A detailed assessment of the costs for the current academic year may be found on the following Registrar's web pages:
Graduate Student Quarterly Fees and Expenses gives a summary of basic tuition, fees, and fee credits (i.e., graduate student fee remission for academic appointees, and non-resident supplemental tuition reduction)
Estimated Cost of Attendance gives an estimate of the typical expenses that a graduate student would incur
If you have received your bill for tuition and fees, and you know which fee offsets you will receive (Partial Fee Remission, paid health insurance, and Nonresident Supplemental Tuition Reduction), determine your balance by using the fee structure tables for California residents and nonresidents. Pay the balance of your fees and/or tuition at the Cashier's Office or online by using Gaucho e-Bill.
- If you qualify for Fee Remission as a Teaching Assistant, Associate, Graduate Student Researcher, Reader, or Remedial Tutor: A hiring department's staff member now enters the appointment into UCPath which then GradPoint Financial uses to determine fee remission eligibility.
- If you are receiving a departmental fellowship: Fellowship commitments are processed after the department enters and approves them on GradPoint Financial.
- If you are receiving a central (University) fellowship: Refer to your Graduate Division award notification letter.
- If you are receiving an extramural fellowship: The processing of fee and/or tuition credits depends on the nature of the fellowship.
- If you qualify for Nonresident Tuition Reduction: This service is not a function of Graduate Division. It is a reduced assessment of tuition that is administered by the Office of the Registrar based on information that is provided by the Academic Services section of Graduate Division. The Nonresident Tuition Reduction is for graduate doctoral students who have advanced to candidacy, subject to the understanding that (1) a graduate doctoral student may receive the reduced nonresident tuition rate for a maximum of three years, and (2) any such student who continues to be enrolled or who re-enrolls after receiving the reduced fee for three years will be charged the full nonresident tuition rate that is in effect at that time.
There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to pay your fees and/or tuition by the late payment deadline. However, you must establish "fees paid" status by the deadline in order to avoid a late charge and protect the classes for which you have registered. In such an instance, we recommend that you enroll in a fee payment plan. The fee is $25. Note that you must pay for your graduate student health insurance before you can take the payment plan option.
