Effective Fall 2011, University Education Fee and Fee Remission are the same for resident and nonresident students.

(1) Partial Fee Remission rate consists of Tuition + Student Services Fee. Tuition is estimated to gradually increase, pegged to the rate of inflation. (It is projected that the national rate of inflation should remain between 2% - 3% through 2023; however, that projection is subject to change.)*  Student Services Fee are projected to increase annually by 5%.

(2) UC Office of the President policy provides for a one hundred percent (100%) reduction in nonresident tuition for eligible doctoral students for the nine quarters following advancement to candidacy. After nine quarters, non-resident doctoral students are subject to full tuition.
