WHAT IS THE COST OF THE MSSE PROGRAM?
The AY2022 approved fee is $2,546 per unit regardless of residency. Students normally enroll in 16 units the first year and 14 units the second year. This fee structure enables students to complete all 30 units in one year when all courses are provided every semester. The fee does not include any applicable campus-based fees, health insurance, the cost of living and any personal costs that may be required to complete the program. The fee may increase in subsequent years based on the approval of the UC Office of the President.
The University of California and the MSSE Program are committed to providing financial access to a quality education. Applicants must complete the “need-based grant application” section of the admissions application to be considered for a need-based award. All admitted applicants are automatically considered for merit-based awards; no additional application materials are required. Financial assistance and student loans are available through the Offices of Financial Aid. To apply for Financial Aid, please complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application: https://fafsa.ed.gov
