Estimated Total Program Tuition

Estimated Total Program Tuition

 

Estimates are for the total program, not annually, and are based on full-time enrollment with no specialization/concentration for California residents. In some instances, programs offer program tuition estimates on their websites that do include some fees; these have not been modified, but most estimates were calculated by multiplying the number of units required to graduate by the per-unit cost of tuition, unless a program representative offered a more accurate estimate. Some schools charge less per unit during summer session--in these cases, tuition would be less than the estimate given here. Estimates should not be assumed to definitively rank programs according to cost but to provide a ballpark estimate from which a prospective student can do more research. Bear in mind that scholarships, grants, and work-study programs can all significantly lower tuition costs.
